Title: Exploring Emerging Opportunities for Bangladesh Tourism
Bangladesh has great opportunities in this tourism sector. Tourism is one of the mostimportant sectors for Bangladesh as a developing country. Increases in economic growth,disposable income and leisure time, political stability, and aggressive tourism campaigns,among others factors, have fuelled the significant growth of tourism. My research project willfocus on exploring the opportunities for Bangladesh tourism industries
Though Bangladesh is not so famous to the world wide, it has a bright future as a Tourismattraction include archeological sites, historic mosques and monuments, resorts, beaches,picnic spots, forest and wildlife. the largest port city of the country and known as the city of shrines; Mainamati, Mahasthangarh and Paharpur, archaeological treasures of Hindu andBuddhist rule in the country from 300 BC to 1200 AD (Hossain, 2007). Above all, riverinebeauty, colourful tribal culture and simple village life are the main factors for attractingvisitors (Hossain and Hossain, 2002). Bangladesh is a riverine country having attractivepanoramic beauty. There are hills, vales, deep and mangrove forests, rivers and the longestbeach in the world. In this country, the scope of nature based tourism, research based tourism,culture based tourism and eco-tourism is quite evident. In Bangladesh, prospective areas arepresent, minimum infra-structural arrangement is developing, role of government is nowpositive, private and public organizations have come forward side by side to attract the localand foreign tourists, researchers, dignitaries and foreign delegates. Having all the minimumrequirements, the tourism industry could not develop adequately. The cracks of problem couldnot identify accurately because of paucity of sufficient number of research and investigationsin our country. This could benefit the tourism industry in multiple ways. This could change theeconomic picture of tourism sector and contribute a big share in the GDP of Bangladesh.
