About Barisal

Barisal which is also known as Barishal, is an old city in Bangladesh and is on the banks of the Kirtankhola River. The city started to be established in the late 1800s and today has a population of over 300 thousand people.

The ancient city of Barisal was also known as Bacola in Europe. British traders trading leather visited the region in the 1500s and after these years, the city grew and flourished under the influence of European immigrants. Barisal can be reached by Barisal Airport which is located near the city center. It is also the sister city of Ludhiana in India, Bukhara in Uzbekistan and Yangon in Mayanmar.

Rice and fish are very important in the city's cuisine, which is located 120 kilometers from Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Due to the country being less developed the technological infrastructure in the region is very limited. Thanks to its location on fertile lands, the city is also called "granery lands".

The level of education in the city is extremely low and only a small part of the population are able to continue to higher education. On the other hand, apart from the classical routes, Barisal promises an extremely colourful and interesting atmosphere. Especially in the markets established in the center, you will find the chance to experience Bangladesh's city life up closely.

Some of the great places to visit in and near Barisal include the Kuakata Buddhist Temple, Guthia Mosque and Kuakata Beach.

In the city you can come across floating markets, which have an important place in the far eastern culture. Buying fresh tropical fruits from the boats at Guava Market is a unique experience especially for travelers who are open to interesting experiences.

Before travelling to the city, it is best to take precautions against possible diseases and get vaccinated. Also, in order to complete your journey safely, you should stay away from areas that may be dangerous for tourists. To safely navigate the city you can get advice from local Bangladesh guides. You can transport from the airport to the city center and around the city very cheaply by public transportation such as buses. But then again for security reasons private service vehicles or taxis are recommended more.
