YPT has been running tours to Tibet for several years now. It was only natural then, after offering this classic for that long, that we’d get interested in offering you the neighbours of the region. Looking more and more into For the first time this year, YPT offers you the opportunity to join us for a tour of Bangladesh and Bhutan, with the option to have a shorter or longer time in Bangladesh, based on your time and budget.
A land of rivers, Bangladesh has been completely off the radar when it comes to tourism, especially when compared to its neighbour, India. Bangladesh offers frantic action and the same kind of noise, colours and fragrance overload as India, only without the peddlers and the hordes of tourists. You’ll journey from the capital city of Dhaka to the village of Tangail where we stay with the locals. We’ll see UNESCO sites, mosques, ruins and temples, including the Bagerhat mosques and the temple city of Putia. All of this with the YPT sauce, homestays with hill tribes and a visit to the world’s infamous shipbreaking yard of Chittagong.
If you do not have much time but would like to see a bit of Bangladesh and Bhutan, join for our shorter version of the Bangladesh leg, taking in a bit of Dhaka and Chittagong.
Throughout the Bhutan section of the trip, we will visit the capital city of Thimphu and take in all of its museums and monasteries. We’ll then head to Punakha to visit the Temple of Fertility, built by the Divine Madman as well as other masterpieces of Buddhist architecture. It wouldn’t be a tour of Bhutan without visiting its most impressive building, the Tiger’s Nest Monastery, built on the flank of a mountain near Paro.
The longer part of the trip you book, the best deal you get and if this wasn’t good enough, we are throwing in the flights to connect the whole thing! Discounts available for all our returners!
