Can you imagine a beautiful place, not only in the natural landscape but in the people, where it is virtually untouched by tourism? Bangladesh is such a place. The Sundarbans in the South of Bangladesh is the largest Mangrove forest in the world, one of the many unspoiled gems to discover in this lovely country. Bangladesh is approximately the size of Florida. In the last three weeks, having traveled the length and width of the country, it has been a delight to meet some of the friendliest people you'll ever encounter who are curious and welcoming. They have had little experience with tourists and almost every person will want to invite you to cha(tea) snacks and smiles. Another Shangri La we discovered is a visionary eco resort.
