Bangladesh has several national parks with abundant
wildlife (including the rare Royal Bengal tiger)
and many species of exotic birds. Tours (usually
for groups of ten or more people) are organised
by the Bangladesh Parjatan Corporation (see Useful
Contacts section). For further details, see the
Points of Interest section.
Water Sports: Located
in the Rangamati Hill District, Kapati Lake offers
good opportunities for sailing, swimming and fishing.
A range of watersports is also available on the
coast, particularly at Cox's Bazar (see Points
of Interestfor details). Boating enthusiasts may
head to Sunderbands National Park, large parts
of which are only accessible by rowing boat.
Cricket, hockey and football are amongst the most
popular national sports. The Dhaka Metropolitan
Soccer League season begins in April. Games are
held in the city stadium and playgrounds. Floodlit
badminton courts can be found almost everywhere
and visitors are welcome to join the locals at
one of their favourite games
