ইংরেজি বিবরন (English Description)

10 Oct 2019

Last winter I wanted to visit lots and lots of snowy places! Despite going to Norway and Sweden, I ended up finding my winter wonderland in Helsinki. Helsinki is a perfect destination for a snowy city break as it has to offer a combination of nature, history and art in a metropolitan city. Because it is such a small city you can definitely see it within 24-48 hours (I’m going to admit I spent a lot of time in Cafés drinking hot chocolate and Finnish Coffee). Here’s a list of some of the places we visited:

– Helsinki Cathedral
– Uspenski Cathedral
– Old Market Hall
– National Museum
– Parliament House
– Walk around the waterfront (you’ll get some pretty views of the Ferris Wheel!)
– Take a vintage tram ride
– Go to Café Regatta

Suomenlinna sea fortress

Ok so this place was special.

Suomenlinna Sea Fortress is an UNESCO world heritage site, a giant maritime fortress spread across seven islands. and a very popular place to visit in Helsinki. Board the ferry from Kauppatori – the journey is only 15 mins (3 euros per person) but you get some excellent views during the ride. Check out the videos, I actually felt like I was flying over ice.
Helsinki is surrounded by beautiful little islands that you can reach by ferry (you can get there with a regular Helsinki travel card). It’s so easy to get to the islands, making a fun little escape from the city.

Finland is a country I definitely plan to visit again possibly to see the Northern Lights from Lapland (though my dream is to see the Northern Lights from Iceland!). Helsinki is a beautiful city with very friendly people.

As always, please look after the environment while travelling. Happy travels!

An Escape to Tranquility:

Place: Karam Mura Eco Resort, Satkhira; it is located at the verge of Sundarbans-Satkhira Range. Just opposite of the house you can see the forest and river.

Though it was my research area, but after staying 1.5 months to this awesome place, I absulately fall in love. My soul was filled with the beauty, cordiality of hosts and tranquility of this place!

If you want a quick break from busy city life and a bit adventurous, then it might be a perfect escape for you.

Kalinchi is a small village of Munshigonj union of Satkhira. The last village connecting Sundarbans of Satkhira range to India.

I stayed in the eco resort of Munda tribes. Though they call it resort but it’s basically an amalgamation of regular living areas of Munda’s with some modern facilities. The house is made of bamboo in traditional style with modern toilet/bathroom facilities which is a bit away from living area.

Route to the base:

Three options available:
1. Fly from Dhaka to jessore (25 mins fly time) then you can hire vehicle (any four wheelers) to the base (3.5 hrs app)
Cost- airticket 2700 and upward depending on demand per head.
Car 4000-5000 bdt for four seater

2. Through bus from Dhaka to Shyamnagar. Then hire any tomtom or bike to the base
AC buses available only in night (9 hrs plus travel time)*
Non-AC at day time (9 hrs plus travel time)*
*may be non-AC bus ticket costs 500 and don’t have idea about AC one.
From shyamnagar to Kalinchi 45 mins to 1 hr in bike. (Per hear 200 max)

3. Through bus from Dhaka to Shyamnagar. From Shyamnagar to Vetkhali another Bus.
From Vetkhali to Kalinchi 15 to 20 mins in bike (60 taka per person) or you may travel through boat from Ramjanagar to the base if you can communicate with the resort owner.

Facilities: Room with double and single bed (per night 1000 bdt)
You can cook your own food or if you don’t want hussle then the owners will arrange local coal stove cooked food. Fresh fishes, crab, duck, chicken…these are common items. On top of these you can enjoy different local fresh pithas.
They can arrange boat tour to the Sundarbans (max 2000 bdt for boat trip)
If you wish to see their local culture they will arrange cultural program on their floating extension over the river of Sundarbans. (2000 bdt for cultural program)

I would suggest to go in dry period as muddy and slippery way is not favorable for all, if possible go during the full moon, I bet you will fall in love with this place.

Visa & Air ticket: We got our tickets on a promotional offer of Malindo Air. It costed nearly 27500 BDT for each return ticket.For visa you have to apply for a letter of invitation through an agency which will cost you around 6500 BDT per person. You will need to get a stamp worth 25 USD on arrival at Vietnam.

Day 1- Hanoi: it was almost afternoon when we arrived at Hanoi. We had booked our hotels at old quarter which is the main tourist hub. Right beside the Hoan Kiem Lake, old quarter is packed with colonial architecture, Buddhist temples as well as café, bars, a variety of restaurants, bakeries and boutique shops. As it was almost evening by the time we were done with our late lunch, we took a stroll around the lake and the night market and tried the delicious Vietnamese street foods ( yeah, right after that lunch) and horrible egg coffee ( don’t fall for that hype) at note café. We also went to see the 45 mins water puppet show in the evening but you can skip this one if you are taking cruise to halong bay next day as most of the cruises offer the show for free. If you are planning to buy any local stuff, I would recommend buying it from Hanoi as you will get them cheapest here. There is a beer alley where you can see many pubs and bars with plastic chairs placed outside. You can get world cheapest beer Bia hoi here. Most the bars and pubs get closed by 12am due to the Hanoi’s rather strict laws. We left early for hotel as we had to wake up early next morning for our cruise.

Day 2 & Day 3 Halong Bay:
Most of the questions I get about Vietnam tour are about the cruise to Halong Bay. Most of the people take 2 days- 1 night cruises and we did the same. You can select a half day tour which will be a short trip around Hanoi, Ha long Bay and Cat Ba and 3 days-2 night trip with more activities. I had to google a lot and visit many websites find the right cruise as I didn’t know many people who have one before me. There were lots and lots of options which I divided in three categories.

1. The romantic/ honeymooners cruises where the activities and the rooms are designed for couples. The boats are comparatively smaller in sizes but the rooms are usually far much better, especially with Jacuzzi and veranda in your room! The cost per person for a luxury cruise is usually 170- 250 USD. Orchid cruise, Aphrodite cruise, Paradise luxury cruises are some of the best cruises for couples.

2. The young adult cruises are mostly the fun budget cruises those are known for their parties filled with backpackers. The cost per person ranges from 120 – 190 USD. You can choose some 4 stars cruises as Calypso Cruise,, L’Azalee Cruise, Princess Halong Junk, Oasis Cruise etc.
3. The longer route cruises are the one we went for. We chose Dragon Legend cruise as this was one of the very few cruises that go to Bai Tu Long Bay. The ship looked like it has come out of a fairytale. The food was amazing, the ambience was amazing and my pictures came out amazing. I wanted to go to Bai Tu long Bay as it was less crowded by ships unlike Ha long Bay thus I could enjoy the scenic beauty in peace. The days were filled with activities like Kayaking, Swimming, squid fishing, cooking demonstration (it’s more like how to eat Vietnamese roll). 1 night 2 days trip was 400 dollars after some negotiation.

Day 4- Danang:
After Hanoi, we were kind of overloaded with history and wars. So instead of Hue like we had planned before coming here ,we decided to stay at Danang for one day. And what a surprise it was! The amazing blend of French architecture, modern American city vibe and natural beauty. One day was not just enough. Before planning the trip I got recommendations for Hanoi,Hoi An, Hue, Sapa,Na thrang and Ho Chi Minh. Danang is definitely worth a visit. Here are somethings you can do if you decide to go there:

Ba na hills: If you love European architecture, ancient castles, Disney/universal studio like I do, you will love this place. It’s located on the top of Ba na mountain and the castles there are inherited from the French. The ticket price is 32 dollars per person. You get to go there riding world’s longest single cable car. There is a French village with church, shops, numerous eateries and hotels, music and everything that screams European and a hill with 9 gardens. The place is not really artificial like Disney feels sometimes,more like a better version of london countryside. However, there are options of 4D movies, roller coasters, laser shows if you are going there for amusement. I didn’t get to see all as I had very limited time. But it was absolutely one the best times I have spent while traveling. Btw, the infamous giant hand bridge is also there.
Son tra peninsula: if you like beaches and views of sea from cliff , this is a place for you. Its 14 km away from the city center.This place has the tallest Buddha statue in Vietnam that reminds you of the Jesus’s statue in brazil. You can get the top view of danang city from here. There are also white sandy beaches, heritage banayan tree, hot springs and secret cove there and visiting all these may take a whole day.

The amazing beaches in Danang: only visiting the Danang beaches may take days if you are relaxing there. The water is so clean even near the shore , you won’t be able to resist the urge to swim there. Some of the beaches are just by the side of the city center and will remind you of Miami/Californian beaches. My khe, Non Nuoc ,Thanh Binh and beaches around son tra peninsula are my favourites. I also heard about Cham island where you can go for water sports but as we didn’t have the time we had to skip that.

Day 5 Hoi An:While planning the itinerary for our trip I had read about the floating lanterns festival on full moon nights in Hoi An city. Our tickets were already purchased in a way that we would miss the festival by one day. For some reason they carried on the festival on the second night too and made our trip an unforgettable one. The awe on a kid’ face, the dance on s/he on his feet, the shine on his eyes when he walks into a room of thousands balloons, we had the same expression when we roamed on the roads of Hoi An city among thousands of lanterns on the full moon night. Hoi An is like an oven during day. We visited My son city which is an ancient ruin and if you are an admirer of all the things that feels old only then you should go for this one as you will be half baked within an hour there. If you are giving it a miss, book a cycle and roam around the yellow city.We went to ao nong beach in afternoon. This place was a bit crowded but the worth a visit for the amazing food( yeah,me,foodie) and the beautiful sand.

Day 6 &7: After Hoi An, we flew to Ho Chi Minh, the capital city.Ho Chi Minh is modern, scorching hot and vibrant. The museums in this city will give you goosebumps and will make you hate America a bit. The best thing about them were while the showcased the unimaginable torture violence and losses caused by years of wars , they also talk about hope,how the bounced back as a nation even after going through so much difficulties.They perfectly reflect their strong heritage and patriotism, what Vietnam is as a country. All the tourist places are close to each other, so you can walk and cover all the places like the old post office, cathedral, war museums ,independence palace,Saigon notre dam etc. Only the chu chi tunnel is a bit far and you have to start early morning for that one if you are staying at Saigon. I am never a city person while travelling,so Ho Chi Minh didn’t feel that great compared to the other places. But if you like bars,pubs and big malls, this is your place. If you want to party with the backpackers coming from all over the world ,go to Bon Vuen street.Hotels and food are cheap here too like all other places in Vietnam. Don’t buy any brand stuff though,as because of the higher tax they will cost you almost double than usual.

Day 8: Flew back to Dhaka with a still hungry heart.

Phew!i think this is the longest post I have ever written.Hope this helps!

P.S don’t forget to keep the environment clean wherever you are travelling and let other enjoy the same beauty you have witnessed.

The breathtaking PARO international airport surrounded by peaks heightening around 5500 m. The airport itself stands on a height of 2000m+ from the sea level.

How to go -> Dhaka-Burimari-Phuentsholling-Paro(by road)
Dhaka-Paro (by air)

We went there by road by ourselves, not from any agency. first, we took the transit visa of INDIA as we have to go through their land. After getting visa, we headed for Changrabandha, crossed the border and headed for Jaigaon. Jaigaon is the Indian portion of Bhutan Borderland.
Then completing all the formalities, we hired a taxi for next 5 days for 12000rupee and headed towards Thimpu. we stayed there that night.
Next day completed our THIMPU sightseeing.(the food cost in Thimpu is way to HIGH)
And again the next day we headed for Punakha, visited the Punakha dzong and their suspension bridge. (things here is a bit less expensive then Thimpu). while on route to Punakha we stopped at the do Chula pass. we got our first snow there.
and the next day we went to Paro. it took about 1-1.5 hours to reach there. and the first thing we saw after getting a hotel, is this, airport viewpoint.

Truly is an amazing place. Our total cost was around 25k including the up down bus fare to Siliguri from Dhaka.(we also visited Darjeeling)

নেপালের একটি গ্রাম। অন্নপুর্ণা রেঞ্জের এই গ্রামটি বিশেষভাবে পরিচিত অন্নপুর্ণা বেইজক্যাম্প ট্রেকিং এর জন্য।

নিচের ছবিটি এই গ্রাম থেকেই তোলা। অন্নপুর্ণা সার্কিট ট্রেকের ইনফো কালেক্টের জন্য গুগলে ঘোরাঘুরি করতে গিয়ে দেখলাম। প্রথমে ভাবছিলাম হয়তো সার্কিট ট্রেকের কোনো গ্রাম হবে। পরে দেখি না এটি এবিসি ট্রেকের অংশ। শুধু এই গ্রাম আর তার আশে পাশের কিছু ছবি দেখে মনে হচ্ছে সার্কিট ট্রেকের আশা বাদ দিয়ে অন্নপুর্ণা বেইজ ক্যাম্পের প্ল্যান করি।
এমন সুন্দর গ্রামে জীবনে একবার না গেলেই নয়

ছবিতে দৃশ্যমান কাছেই তিনটি চুড়ার সবচেয়ে ডানেরটা হলো-

Fishtail বা Machapuchare (6993m)
মাঝখানেরটা হলো Hiunchuli (6441m)
আর একদম বামেরটা হলো Annapurna South (7219m)

আর দূরে আবছা দেখা যাচ্ছে তিনটি চুড়া-

সর্বডানে Annapurna lll (7555m)
মাঝখানে Gangapurna (7455m)
আর বামে খুব সম্ভবত Singu Chuli (6501m)

Ghandruk, Abc, Nepal

(ইনফোতে কোনো ভুল থাকিলে ক্ষমা প্রার্থী, ধরিয়ে দিলে শুধরে নিয়ে কৃতজ্ঞ হইবো।
ছবি গুগল থেকে নেয়া)

Burimari border from Kalyanpur by Manik Express BDT 800
– Travel tax and border expenses BDT 800
– Auto to Changrabandha junction and local bus from Changrabandha to Siliguri Rs. 90
– Tata sumo from Darjeeling Mor (Siliguri) to Darjeeling Rs. 150

We rented a Bullet 500 Royal Enfield for Rs. 1400 per day from Siliguri!

Bike rental details:
You can rent bikes from Siliguri. We took ours from ‘Darjeeling Riders’. You will get a couple of companies if you google ‘Siliguri Bike Rent’. They take online bookings too. We had to deposit Rs. 10k as safety money for 2 bikes. But this amount is usually negotiable depending on the company and can go as low as Rs. 1-2k. We took one Royal Enfield Bullet 500 and one Avenger 220, but there are cheaper bikes avalable too. International license is NOT needed, Bangladeshi license will do.

Darjeeling is open again after 104 days of strike. Super comfortable weather in October, breathtaking Kanchonjangha, amazing reasonable food in restaurants like Keventer’s and Glenary’s which have been in Darjeeling for 140 years! Want to go there again before my visa expires
