Many tourists travel to Chittagong to relax on its beautiful beaches. Of them all, Patenga Sea Beach is the most popular. In addition to 22km of unspoilt sands, the beach is also a major draw in the evenings for visitors who want to see some spectacular sunsets. Thousands flock to the shore as the sun goes down, some sitting on the naturally-formed stone ‘benches’ that have protected the beach from being eroded by the sea.
For city sights and a dip into the region’s history, the Ethnological Museum should be part of your trip to Chittagong. It offers a fascinating and interactive insight into the various peoples and tribes who now make up the city’s population and tracing them back to the first discovered settlements.
