Village Home Stay
Surely Bangladeshi cities are bustling, packed, and congested, continual horn of the car, with activity, but the soul of Bangladesh is in its villages and along its rivers. Experience warm Bangladeshi hospitality; imagine living in a traditional house at the countryside, while you enjoy a laid-back lifestyle and plenty of fresh air. Wake up to the sound of birds and cockerels and have a pleasant day with your friendly host family. Villagers harvesting crops and planting fields anew, flocks of animals gathering, and gaggles of geese scrabbling about. Kids played after school cricket, and families spent time winding up their day. Of course, they took a break to catch a glimpse of the visitors, or even to get a handshake. In brief, when you go to the Bangladesh countryside, it gives you a sense of hope.

What to ware ?
As Bangladesh is a majority Muslim country and has a conservative attitude toward dress. In this regard, a modest dress is always welcomed. In the metropolitan cities western dress will not be any problem but in the rural area better to be a bit modestly dressed to receive respect from the locals.
To show respect to religious places, You are requested to wear modest clothes to enter the mosques included on the tour. It is not possible to visit mosques wearing shorts. Women need to cover hair and arms. Also, need to leave your shoes outside while visiting a mosque or a temple.
In general, people like to be in the frame of foreigners even sometimes feel very proud to be captured and give a willing pose in front of the camera which you will not find anywhere in the world. However, it is better to take permission before taking any pictures especially of any young girls, soldiers and tribal people.
