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.
