Situated in southeastern Bangladesh, Chittagong is the country’s second-largest city and home to the largest port in the nation. This city is the perfect blend of quiet hill town charm and buzzing port activity. It serves as a gateway to the magnificent Cox Bazar, the world’s longest beach; St. Martin’s Island, the country’s only coral island, and the spectacularly scenic Chittagong Hill Tracts, the main attraction of Chittagong. Known as a popular tourist destination and one of the most beautiful areas in Bangladesh, the Chittagong Hill Tracts feature undulating hills, lush valleys, dense jungle, dramatic cliffs, and impressive waterfalls. Visitors can explore the city’s treasures including the impressive Shahi Jama-e-Masjid and Qadam Mubarak Mosques, discover the beautiful Sitakunda Eco Park and Botanical Garden, and learn about the local Bangladeshi cultural heritage at Chittagong's Ethnological Museum.
