Caution

Stay Safe

Bangladesh is a country full of friendly and open minded people. But being a poor country with a high poverty rate, there are some impoverished or bad-natured people who may find ways to exploit a foreigner/tourist. Armed robbery, pick pocketing, and purse snatching are common to Bangladesh. Therefore it is advised that you do not carry a large amount of money with you or wear jewellery in the street. Thieves often work in pairs on motorcycles or 3-wheeled motorized rickshaws known as ”CNGs”. Passengers using ”cycle rickshaws” and ”CNGs” or travelling alone in taxis are particularly vulnerable, especially at night. If travelling alone you should try to avoid using public transport. When travelling by rickshaw, CNG (auto-rickshaw) or bus, stay careful to keep valuables close at hand.

It’s best to not eat, drink or smoke anything offered to you by strangers – there’s a growing problem in many Asian countries of drugging, and you’re likely to see signs warning you against it on buses, trains, etc. That’s not to say you shouldn’t take someone up on their offer for a home cooked meal, but you may want to think twice about that piece of candy the person in the seat next to you just handed to you. Also, be careful about the sanitation procedures of local street food and snacks.

Speeding bus/coaches/trucks cause many deaths. Road signs and traffic lights are often ignored by cars, and traffic jams are always a given, making it very difficult for pedestrians to travel. It is wisest NOT to drive yourself or to walk major roads alone. Consequently, road travel (if absolutely necessary) is best undertaken with an experienced local driver in a good vehicle with safety belts.

Stay Healthy

Bottled water is recommended, as the tap water is often unsafe for foreign stomachs, and some hand-drawn tube wells are contaminated with naturally occurring arsenic. This will easily pass through filters designed only to screen out bacteria. A more environmentally friendly option is to boil your own water, or use purifying tablets. However, nothing short of distillation will remove arsenic.

It’s also wise to use discretion when eating from street vendors – make sure it’s freshly cooked and hot.

Mosquitoes can be abundant in some areas and cities, especially during the rainy and humid seasons, and nets covering your bed at night are often provided, even in some of the cheapest hotels and in all households.

Consult your travel doctor about precautions against malaria and typhoid fever. Get vaccinated and take preventive and curative medication with you before you go.

Pollution can be a problem, and in some of the cities like Dhaka and Chittagong. You can use masks to avoid the bad smell and germs.
