Please note that Bangladesh is a developing country with very limited tourism infrastructure. In many locations luxury, or even moderate class accommodation compared to western standards is non existent. Where possible we have included the most luxury accommodation possible which can be downgraded on request of course to lower costs. Some nights in remote areas however will be spent in the best local accommodation possible but this might be well below standards western tourists are used to with very basic rooms and cold water only in bathrooms, showers. Take part in this tour only if this is something you are used to during your travels or that you can accept.
