Four ways to make your trip to Bangladesh memorable!
1. Get out from behind the lens: Sure you want photographs to remember your vacation and make your friends jealous. But don’t forget the importance of being in the moment. As stunning as the sights are, they’re even better when seen through your own two eyes and not a viewfinder. Remember to truly experience wherever you are, in addition to photographs, you’ll bring back great stories and memories. And since you must have pictures since its worth a thousand words, you can always ask one of the fabulous Experience Bangladesh photographs to take your pictures for the day.
2. Write it down: Nothing helps cement memories like putting them to paper. Whether its sending a postcard back home or keeping a journal, putting pen (or pencil) to paper is a great way to remind yourself of the sights, sounds, and even smells of your vacation. And if you must have memorable paper as well, you can always pick up journals with beautiful handmade paper at boutique stationery stores in Dhaka like Source in Azad gate area.
3. Eat Authentic: Sure you’re eating local, but are you really eating like a local? Hotel restaurants and fast food chains don’t always leave a lasting impression. Instead, aim for the neighbourhood watering holes. Planning your meals in advance? Don’t rely solely on guide books and travel sites, make sure to check online and print reviews as well. Already at your destination? Chat up a local and ask for recommendations.
4. Learn something: Instead of just bringing home pictures and static souvenirs, what about picking up a skill? Think cooking lessons, pottery classes, yoga retreats, etc. Now, for the rest of your life, whenever you make a special dish or do downward facing dog, you’ll remember your vacation in a truly special way.
