Before Bangladesh tours below information will help you to acknowledge on Bangladesh.
Bangladesh has a glorious history; it lies on the eastern fringe of the Indian
Sub-Continent. The people of Bengal have always been great lovers of freedom.
As a result, the land nearly always enjoyed a fair degree of sovereignty during
its entire history, sometimes as one state and sometimes as several, with only
perfunctory allegiance to the central ruling powers. In the 18th century Bengal
became a part of the British Empire. In 1947, when the subcontinent was divided
into Pakistan and India, it became eastern part of Pakistan.
The Bengali nation separated from Pakistan through nine months armed struggle
and Bangladesh became an independent, sovereign country in 1971.
Bangladesh is officially called as "The People's Republic of Bangladesh”.
