Hi Okly,

Simon Reeve (journalist) went on his 2nd trip to Bangladesh. According to him you cant get very close to the shipyards as the ship breaking companies dont allow it.

You might want to look on youtube for the video.

In order to get as much close as he can to a ship, he hired a small boat to reach a certain distance.

There is a recent post on another popular travel forum about this. It seems that it's pretty hard to get in and if you do manage it then it's very unlikely you'll be able to use a camera.
