Where do you want to go?Bangladesh

To Bangladesh and beyond is not a travel agency; it is a gateway, bridging the gap between you and the local service providers throughout the country. It is a concept, an initiative, infusing the combined resources of Grace Tours, based in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Interspeed Media, a Dhaka based advertising company.

Via this website you will not only be able to have an overview of available destinations within Bangladesh and different levels of accommodation, (on our website, you can choose from a wide variety of accommodations – homestay hideaways, heritage hotels & palaces, rural farms, beach villas, jungle lodges, spa retreats, and even tree-houses!), but you will also be able to contact locally based hotel owners and tour guides, ask questions, provide answers and buy travel products and services all in one place.

Hill Top Inn

Chittagong’s streets teem with clattering rickshaws, the honking busses and of course, the bustle of millions of lives going about their daily routines. The city’s main arteries are intensely busy and congested, so much so that when you enter the quiet hilly neighbourhoods of Khulshi, you instantly forget you’re in Bangladesh’s second (and second noisiest) largest city. Once you step into the Hill Top Inn, the peace, the quiet and the shade of the main property’s mango tree makes one feel quite at home. 

The guesthouse actually comprises two separate palatial homes, whose rooms have been converted into guest quarters. The main block has three floors with three or four rooms each, and the South Khulshi building is almost identical. The properties are well suited for business travellers, NGO workers and visitors from Dhaka who seek personal service in a local residential neighbourhood — Khulshi could easily be compared with Dhaka’s Gulshan area.

In terms of stuff to do, Chittagong offers the normal gamut of shopping and fine eateries, although tourists would probably find their time better spent in the nearby Chittagong Hill Tracts or Cox’s Bazaar, so in this sense the city is more of a transit point than it is a tourist destination. But for the discerning traveller who has come to Chittagong on business, the Hill Top Inn is a great place to base yourself, by virtue of the fact it is low key, low impact, and doesn’t try to have hundreds of guests crowding its peaceful residential neighbourhood.
