I took a photography tour yesterday with Nijhoom Tours and its fearless leader, Hasan. Hasan displayed an incredible ability to navigate the hectic maze that is Old Dhaka and imparted lots of knowledge about the city and the country. It was a super efficient and organized way to experience the most interesting and colorful parts of Dhaka in one full day. Highly recommend!

I did recently a guided photography tour in Dhaka. The full day trip was very well organized and the service provided by the tour operator was excellent. We took wonderful photos and really enjoyed the colorful and lively markets in Dhaka.

Bangladesh was my 131st country to visit. After a long survey (internet, but also Lonely Planet) I decided to contact Nijhoom Tours as they had the programs which suited me the best. Although Hasan (the owner) was traveling in Europe, he was very prompt in giving all the answers. I opted for the 6-days Rocket & Sundarbans tour. The tour went smooth - although Bangladesh is quite challenging in terms of traffic, absolutely everything went on time and precise. Arafat was also a great guide, with lots of information, arranging everything in a perfect way and a fantastic eye to find the wildlife in the forest. Arafat had a good knowledge in lots of areas - from history and religion to wildlife and always friendly and smiling. We were lucky that on the day we went the old Rocket was operating. Arafat and his colleague arranged for me a surprise party on boat (it was actually my birthday on the day). I should highlight that in Sundarbans we had a small boat (with a 7-people crew for 3 guests !) so when we visited the channels we had a small boat without engine in order not to scare off animals - all the other tours were on big boats and the trips were done on overcrowded engine-powered boats (I wonder if they saw any animal or bird). Food was great on boat (we got a great cook and only fresh food), accomodation in Khulna was top and all the cars we were transported were top quality ones. I would conclude the services where world class in a pretty tough environment.

I did the East and West photo tour as well as Chittagong tour with Faysal. I am not a very good photographer and I’m not really extrovert. Though, spending a full day with a guide will motivate you to take picture, make people pose for you and practice. Bangladeshi are genuinely nice and no one asked me money (except few beggars of course). In the bazar, people generally had time to spend, discuss and laugh. As long as I started smiling to people, many of them asked me to take picture of them. It empowered me to try some compositions and make them pause (first time I actually dared asking for people to pause for me). People always reacted very nicely to pictures I took and we had good laughs. Faysal sometimes managed few turbulent children to be sure nothing would happen to me. He also helped me making my way in the city, finding the right place every time in the bazar. He also advised me on few ideas people had to take pictures previously. He will also give you insight on the different places. My Advice: get prepared and look at some blogs before going in order to find some ideas of which pictures you could take. For Chittagong, take a raincoat and if possible spare pants so you can wear something for the 5 hour train travelling back to Dhaka. Safety: I appreciated to be driven in a recent car with seatbelt and aircon during my tour. I also appreciated that every time we took a boat (Buriganga river and Chittagong), Faysal had a life jacket for me. Note that after one hour in a small boat over the Buriganga river, my lungs were burning a bit as the river is polluted.

I was meant to be doing a 8 day Sundarbans tour in late November but due to a cyclone the week before I travelled the National park was closed. I had already booked my flights so I asked Hasan what my options were. I was travelling solo and 2 others were in the same situation as me and they opted do a tour involving Sreemangal tea plantations + Lawachara national park, Dhaka, and Barisal backwaters tours over the 8 days. I’m gutted that I never got to visit Sundarbans but I had so much fun on these other tours. A lot of it was down to being with 2 older kiwi women who were good fun but also our guide Arafat who gave an amazing service with everything organised superbly by himself and Nijhoom. I can’t recommend this country and this company highly enough. I have travelled extensively all over the world and one of the things I loved about Bangladesh was that there are no tourists here at all! People were saying to me “what are you doing here?” Highlights- A 17 carriage train coming right by us at full speed through the forest in Lawachara National Park The night ferries to and from Barisal, wow what an experience, especially the ferry coming back into Dhaka as the sun was rising, never seen anything like it The people of Bangladesh, so friendly and fun! If there is one small bit of constructive feedback I would give it would be for the train journey to the Srimangal area to be in 2nd class and not 1st class. You would obviously think that 1st class would be better but you can’t see anything outside in this cabin and as tourists/travellers the 2nd class cabin would be better as you can see the countryside passing by and we are here to see the country! Can’t recommend this company and country enough, keep up the good work!
