One of the stairs to achieve financial prosperity is tourism industry. According to a report countries are topping in the list are Chile, France, Spain, India, China, America etc.
In a statement published by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) that out of 65 best tourism destinations 21 are in Asia. Though China, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia and other countries are there in that list but sadly not Bangladesh. With rich destinations such as largest mangrove Sundarbans, longest sea beach are in our country.
In addition to Cox’s Bazar and Kuakata, Saint Martin, Sajek, Rangamati, Mohastan Garh, Buddha Bihara, Sonargaon, Shatgambuj Masjid, Moinamati and including Shalbonbihara large Parjaton Centres are overwhelmed with numerous problems. Cox’s Bazar name has become synonymous to “Yaba Business” and gunfight.
Though Cox’s Bazar is the longest sea beach in the world. There are not enough of planned accommodations. Travelling to Saint Martin has become dangerous due to unavailability of licensed sea driver to transport tourist to and from Teknaf – Saint Martin.
It is vital to give due attention to this industry. If the tourism industry is proper planned and it’s implementation is done we shall also be able to rise our head high before the world.
