and avoid any kind of hartal(strike) during travel. yesterday more than 5 died and hundreds of injured through country wide police vs protesters war.

IMO the best season to visit Bangladesh is the winter which is Mid Nov-Mid March. This is because the weather is more suitable for travel.

However Coxs Bazar becomes jam packed and I would avoid it during this peak season.

Februrary is also the month of the lanugaue movement and 21st Feb (National Mother Language day) is a great day to experience, which is also a national holiday. There is a different kind atmosphere around the whole of Bangladesh on that day.

Indeed winter is the perfect time to visit Bangladesh, the weather is nice, not hot/humind, almost like early sunny summer days by western standard. On top, Feb is the month when there are lots of cultural activities in Dhaka and possibly in other districts, culminate in the celebration of International Mother Language day on the 21st of Feb. Its a fantastic time to experience local colorful Mela/events, lots of traditional culinary delights would be on offer in these Melas. So try those out and have fun!

Hope your trip went well and you weren't caught up in the political unrest. We returned at the end of January and while it was a lovely time of year, I was relieved we were not experiencing protest action as dangerous as this: thedailystar.net/beta2/…
