Bagerhat is only a small village in South-western Bangladesh. Yet it is reflecting long history and incredible districts of swamps all around it. Most famous for its marvelous mausoleums of Bagerhat which are also considered to be UNESCO World Heritage Site. Many locals can be encountered near ancient holy sites, here you can join and cook lunch with them or just enjoy lively atmosphere. Once you wander into the jungle you can spot and explore many wooden structures made using straws, wood and palm leaves.

If you are looking for a day trip in the region, this village is definitely worth your while! We suggest stopping and giving it a look at least for a daybreak from Khulna!

Helpful tips

Restaurants. Eat with locals! Near most of the holy sites, they usually cook food for many people, also, street food stands available nearby. And some restaurants on your way there. However, as Bagerhat is a small village, we suggest trying traditional cuisine together with local folks! You can also be involved in making the food process, which is unforgettable experience! Go for it!

One more thing is coconuts! The whole South-western region is famous for its coconuts, thus, be sure to try them!

Markets. In Bagerhat as in almost every other city in Bangladesh you will not find a lot of cheap souvenirs to put on your fridge. However, you can get something what locals are making on spot and that is much more interesting if you ask us! In our opinion the most interesting is Bangladeshi rich arts and crafts tradition. Search for things made by locals from wood, leather, copper or most importantly cotton and silks.

Transportation. To get to Bagerhat is easiest from Rupsha(you can reach Rupsha directly from Khulna with boat). Best way is to take a bus which will cost you around 50-euro cents. The drive is quite long (it can take from 1 to 2 hours for the distance of around 25 kilometers) as bus stops in quite many locations and in some it stays for a longer period of time. For higher persons like myself it can get challenging as space is quite limited, especially if it gets crowded. Other option is to take a taxi. Either way, be prepared that it will take some time, relax and enjoy the ride.

Best of luck planning your holidays in Bangladesh!
