Take the path less travelled on a voyage through Bangladesh. Begin your journey in the vibrant capital of Dhaka and experience a night on the iconic Rocket Steamer. Take in the ancient Muslim city of Bagerhat, home of the Sixty Pillar Mosque. Glide among the mangrove trees of the Sundarbans on the lookout for tigers, and barter at the floating markets on the Backwaters of Barisal. Browse traditional indigenous handmade wares and experience the way of life of local tribes first hand.

We keep coming back to TTU because you find some really good guides, and we've experienced some bad ones. You need to keep this guide on your books as he really made the trip...having ascertained the areas Janet teaches on, the cyclones, the flooding, and the Rana Plaza disaster, she has come back much more fully briefed. In visiting the sites on the itinerary, he took full account of Janet's knee and how we were managing the heat and humidity to work out how this was best achieved, threw in extra sites once he realised how interested were, and was always willing to stop if folk were threshing rice by the side of the road, unloading fruit or fish at the quay, processing salt, etc. He has built up a good local network, from which we benefitted.
