Cox’s bazar–the longest natural unbroken sandy beach (155 km) in the world! Miles of silvery sands, surfing waves, rare conch shells, towering cliffs, colorful pagodas, Buddhist temples and tribal life -this is Cox’s bazaar, the tourist capital of Bangladesh. The morning fish market, a few ancient wooden temples in Ramu, is the most attractive in Cox’s Bazaar. Trip to Sonadia and Moheskhali are memorable experiences of a lifetime.
