Bangladesh Travel Advice

What to wear
  • Winter (Nov - Feb) is pretty mild so a light jacket or sweatshirt will be fine.
  • It does rain a lot in the summer/monsoon from June – September and with the high level of humidity it's best to ear natural fabrics so take an umbrella
  • From March – October the daytime temperature can average 30-32°C  so pack lightweight cotton or other natural fibres. Avoid synthetic fabrics as you may get heat burns.

Colour print film is quite widely available but check the use-by date and storage conditions before buying. More specialised supplies should be brought with you from home (remember to check your camera batteries). Lens cleaning materials are invaluable, a polarising filter reduces the fading caused by strong sunlight and silicon gel sachets inside your camera case are a good idea to absorb any humidity. Ask before taking photos of people or religious sites and be wary of photographing dams, airports or other important structures. Don’t use your flash on indoor murals and frescos – it can damage them.

Useful Things to Take

Torch and batteries, insulated water bottle, mosquito net, adhesive tape, alarm clock, wet-wipes, small ruck-sack, fabric shopping bags, padlock.
