    Hi mates!

    Me and my girlfriend are riding a.t.w. in our third year.
    Right now we are in Indonesia and we do some brainstorming about possible routes back home to Germany.
    Originally we intended to fly with the bikes from Bangkok to Nepal and go on from there.
    But we just got the idea to fly to Dhaka (Bangladesh) and ride up to Nepal instead.
    Good idea or better to save the time and spent it in Nepal/India/west of it?
    Any advice? Who did it recently?
    Is Bangladesh nice?
    Traffic like India or a bit more relaxed?
    How about visa? From my understanding you need a invitation or a hotel booking. How did you do it?

    Thanks for any info!

    Cheers

    Panny

    Old topic, but update as future reference.

    Bangladesh is friendly. People are friendly. They love to see foreigners coming to their place. Landscapes are worth checking out.

    The biggest city is Dhaka, which is crowdy. The far you go from Dhaka, the amazing adv awaits for you.

    If you come to ride to Bangladesh, these are the place you should focus on-

    Natural beauty/ sightseeing
    Bandarban, Rangamati, Cox's Bazar, Kutakata, Sundarban, Sylhet.

    Get to know people
    Anywhere in the country.
