Bangladesh is a young country with an ancient history. Situated on the lush, green and fertile land of the Ganges delta, the country gained its independence from Pakistan in 1971. It is a land of writers, saints, scholars, and artists, famous for its music, dance, and drama; folklore; festivals and celebrations; and its distinctive culinary tradition.

When you first arrive in Bangladesh you may be overwhelmed by the crowds, the traffic jams, the humidity, and the lack of familiar facilities however your perspective will change as you come to know its people. Generosity, honesty, integrity and good humour are all traits common to this land, but while 80% of its population live in rural areas Bangladesh remains in most parts a very traditional society, adhering to customs and norms that go back hundreds of years, and so an understanding of the Bangladeshi cultural terrain is key for any successful trip!

Culture Smart! Bangladesh will introduce you to the culture and the people beyond the headlines. It offers clear advice on what to expect and how to behave in different social situations, and whether you are a tourist or you are traveling on business, it will equip you with a cultural literacy that will help bring the experience and interactions into full colour!
