    • Need advice and a few questions answered!

      Bangladesh Nov 25, 2013 at 7:22 PM

      I am a white 19 year old male from america who within the next couple of years plan on going to bangladesh by myself or with my one friend who is also male. I have been doing a good bit of research about the place and the people so i know a little bit of what to expect. Whenever i go i do not plan on staying near the major cities. I have a few questions that i would like to have answered before going and if anyone has any advice for me that would be much appreciated. I would like to be there for a month just as a trial but if it goes well maybe longer. On my stay i plan on helping out where ever and whoever i can. So first thing i would like to ask is what do they need i have very good electrician skills and was wondering if that would come in useful to anyone down there. I was going to go to some local good wills and buy clothes for people(Dont know if this is a good idea or not, would they take it offensively if i try to help them out?). For you people that have been there i would like to know how much money i should bring with me?How much money would i use in a month on like food, transportation, and things like that. I do not look this up yet but if able i was going to take around 10,000usd with me and yes i was planning on helping people out with the money.I also would like to know if i will have a hard time because i only speak english. Should i learn Bangli and if i should is it an easy language to understand? Should i hire a translator and if so where would i be able to do this? I see people have concerns with there water so should i bring my own water with me or where would be the safe places for me to get water? I do plan on getting any possible vaccinations that i can before i go there. I have read that bangladesh people are very nice and curious people and i was just wanting to know if that was true or not? If i go there what are some of the things that i should go see, what are nice places to visit and what are places that i should stay away from? Should i bring things like my cell phone or my laptop? I will be taking a camera. Do they have wifi or internet anywhere it does not really matter to me i was just curious. and if anyone has any advice they would like to share it would be greatly appreciated.

    • Translator Bangladesh, Jessore

      Bangladesh Jul 10, 2013 at 3:15 AM

      Together with 4 other students I'm doing research on post-harvest losses of perishable fruits and vegetables in rural areas in Bangladesh. In about 5 days we will leave Dhaka (were we are now) and head for areas around Jessore. There we will conduct a few interviews with local farmers to get information about losses. However, we need a translator to translate the interviews. (We have some friends from Bangladesh to conduct the interviews, but we need an extra translator). We need a translator for 2 days.

      Does anyone know if it is possible to arrange a proper translator on such a short notice? Does anyone have any experience with having or booking a translator in this area (Jessore)? Are they good translators? What are the prices?

      We actually can't find anything, so perhaps anyone can help us with it, would be appreciated!

      Thanks,

      Hiring a Guide?

      Bangladesh Jan 12, 2013 at 11:27 PM

      Hey guys, I'm flying into Dhaka and will have two full days to explore the city. I've drawn up a list of the places I want to visit however seeing as I've never been to Dhaka before I was wondering if you think it'd be advisable to hire a local guide to take me around so I don't spend half my time getting lost.

      Places I want to visit;

      - Sadarghat River station.
      - Buriganga River
      - Ship repair yard
      - Karwan bazar
      - Korail slum
      - Kamlapur station area
      - Hindu street
      - Chawalk bazar.

      If you can help with where I'd go about hiring a guide and how much you think the rate would be?

      Many thanks to anyone who can help.

      Jon.

      how to find guide for hill tribes in Bandarban or Alikadam areas?

      Chittagong Feb 19, 2012 at 6:32 AM

      We are trying to find a guide to see the Mru people down the Matamuri River close to the town of Alikadam south of Bandarban. It takes 7 days to get a permit so we can't wait till we arrive to find a local guide. The guides at guidetours say that area is too far for them to get a permit as they work around their Hillside Resort in Bandarban.
      Any help on a name and email for a guide would be so much appreciated. We only want to spend a couple of days. Asian Pacific Tours has a 5 day trip for 2500.00 per person and one other agency listed their 5 day trip as 895.00 per person. Normally we would just go to the Alikadam market and find a local to take us but without the permit we would not be allowed to visit that area. Any ideas? thanks so so much

    • Question about renting apartments in Bangladesh

      Bangladesh Feb 17, 2012 at 8:28 AM

      I have wanted to rent an apartment in Bangladesh, and almost every place I want to rent in the foreighn areas or areas where upperclass people live they want like 2 months advance, and some places with a security guard wants about 500 us dollars to move in.
      I have rented apartments before without advance in the villages but why is it in these upperclass areas of the city they want 2 months advance?
      Now I rented one apartment in the city I paid 2 months advance and I do not even know if i will get that back once I leave and I am a poor person.
      Almost every place that wants to rent to me they want advance money.
      Can a lawyer help me get the advance money back if the owner does not want to give it? Is it a scam with foreighners because only in areas where foreighners live they ask for 2 months advance or more.

      Dhaka Jan 31, 2012 at 6:54 AM

      Hello, I'm an Italian Geologist 41 years old, and I've just received a good job offer for one year in Bangla Desh. Basically, I would be based in an office in Dakha, in the quarter of Baridhara, but sometimes with field surveys in Rangpur, Dinajpur, Mymensingh, Tangail, Bogra, and Rajshahi. The job position is extremely attractive and fascinating and also the salary is good (I wuold be payed in Thai Bhat, about 60000 per month, equivalent to 163445.13 Takas, if I correctly converted the currency). I am really excited of this job opportunity, but at the same time I quite worried.
      Browsing on the web I read many controversial information on Dakha and Bangladesh in general. Someone speaks of an awful hot and wet climate, of terrible infective diseases, millions of mosquitoes (including those transmitting the Dengue virus), very bad and dangerous public transports, not drinkable water, unsafe food, very poor hospitals, old houses and hotels not very clean, high levels of criminality, continuous political and religious disorders and fightings. Some others, instead, report of a beautiful, peaceful country, with just some danger of diseases in rural areas.
      Now, taking into account that I'm accustomed to European standards of living and that I should work there for at least one year (not just a few weeks as a tourist) can somebody objectively describe the living conditions in Dakha and in the rest of Bangladesh? Do you think it's worth accepting such a job offer? I am particular worried about infective diseases. Can someone tell me precisely which the compulsory and suggested vaccinations are? And in which do these vaccinations consist? Pills or injections? How long does it take, on the whole, such preventive cures? Just a few days or weeks? Thanks in advance for any answer. Regards.

      Best guide book?

      Bangladesh Aug 17, 2011 at 6:23 PM

      When I started traveling I was a lonely planet girl. But as i've gotten older and traveled more widely i feel that it can be a bit hit or miss depending on the countries and the authors. E.g when i traveled through Central America it was a great source of help and knowledge but when i recently traveled to Colombia it's information fell short and the writing style annoyed me.

      I'm planning to go to Bangladesh for two months or more traveling over from India next February. I was wondering whether to bother with a guide book and if so what are peoples views on the best ones in print?
