Travelling from country to country is a dream for many of us. As the summer has arrived and COVID restrictions are easing all over the world people are chasing toward planning an international trip.

Millions of Bangladeshi people are also lining up their files and updating passports to get visas for their desired travel destination. If you are wondering where to go for a refreshing trip considering the current saturation of just reviving from the COVID hazard, then here we go. Here is a list of international destinations for Bangladesh travelers.

1. India

This neighboring country is at the top of my list due to its ease of getting a visa and affordable trip planning. Anyone can plan a trip to India with just only BDT 20,000/= and can have a taste of refreshing international trip. You just need to fill up the form online and collect necessary papers in order to apply for the visa at any Indian Visa center within Bangladesh.

Kolkata, New Delhi, Darjeeling, Sikkim, Agra, Manali are few of the favorite destinations for most of the Bangladeshi’s. Again, I must mention places like Ladakh, Goa, Kashmir, Shimla, Jaipur to add to your travel list to get the most out of your India tour.

2. United Arab Emirates (UAE)

Most of the people know this country by the name of “DUBAI” the ultimate luxury city which is also known as the pearl of the desert. Though Dubai requires a fat wallet due to its expensive travel, hotel and transportation costs, but believe every penny will be worth it, and it’s very easy to get a 30-day tourist visa for the UAE. To add more, there are thousands of Bangladeshi expats who are living and working in the UAE.

Dubai is a city with over 200 world records, expensive cars, delicious foods, large shopping malls, world-class outlet stores and more. As one of the most visited cities in the world Dubai will offer you diverse culture and people from every nation in one city.

Apart from Dubai, you can pay a visit to the capital city Abu Dhabi and Sharjah for some different experiences. You can enjoy almost all types of activities ranging from skydiving, car racing, scuba diving, cruising on the sea, riding camels, desert safari, indoor skiing and more within this one country.

3. Thailand

Thailand is one of the most common travel destinations for Bangladeshi couples and families. Cities like Bangkok, Phuket, Krabi, Pattaya and Chiang Mai are on top of the list of Bangladeshi people while making a travel plan to Thailand.

Stunning beaches, beautiful islands, exotic night-life, historical temples and wonderful nature are the main attractions of Thailand. Getting a Thai visa is comparatively easy and cheaper for Bangladeshi people along with the reasonable air fare.

4. Malaysia

This country is famous among Bangladeshi people for both vacation destination and job destination. There are thousands of Bangladeshi immigrants in Malaysia who are working over there and earning livelihoods. Malaysia is the most developed and organized country in Southeast Asia with diverse offerings for the tourist.

Though Bangladeshi people mostly visit Kualalampur, Langkawi, Perhentian islands and Kuantan, there are many other awesome places to insert in your list such as Gunung Mulu national park, Borneo rainforest, Cameron highlands, Malacca city etc.

5. Maldives

If you haven’t visited Maldives, then plan your next trip to this heavenly island country because due to the rise of sea level, many islands of the Maldives will be submerged underwater within the next few years. The exciting fact is, as a Bangladeshi you will be given visa on arrival to the Maldives. You just need to get an IMUGA code by filling up the form online along with the usual travel documents.

Maldives mostly offer stunning beaches and islands which is the most suitable destination for honeymoon couples. If you are planning to visit the Maldives, it’s better to go on a travel package because there is no reason to stay longer than 4-5 days in the Maldives.

This is not the end of this list for sure. Bangladeshi people are traveling more often nowadays and thus the list will get longer day by day. There are many other countries like Nepal, Turkey, Vietnam, Bhutan, Singapore, Greece etc. which are becoming more popular among Bangladeshi travelers.
