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.

Hotel Agrabad

The first hotel that comes into a Bangladeshi’s mind when it comes to Chittagong is Agrabad hotel. Indeed this is the oldest and the most respectable one in the city. During the Liberation War of 1971 the building was an office of the Red Cross and is known as one of the buildings that was not bombed in the city for this reason.

The Agrabad area in which this building is located gradually became the busy downtown area with many large office buildings and organisations. This adds to the hotel’s strategic location with the biggest parking lot in town and makes it a perfect stop for business travellers. It has a convenient well-equipped business lounge on the ground floor, a conference hall with modern facilities, and trained staff experienced in serving international guests. However one should also bear in mind that such strategic locations often mean traffic jams!

The Agrabad hotel has been recently awarded a status of a 5 star hotel by Bangladeshi government, so you can expect the room facilities to be higher than Bangladeshi average. This 10-storied hotel offers almost all services needed for a traveller such as a travel desk, swimming pool, beauty parlour and saloon, doctors on call, and even shoe-shining services to name but few. The hotel offers the largest bar in town, a famous roof garden, swimming pool and a gym.      

One should be able to fill up their free time by using those extra services offered inside the hotel or venture outside with the help of a travel desk. Chittagong is a seaport city rich in history and natural beauty. The hotel is a short drive away from Patenga Beach and a beach road called 15-No Naval Road. In the close vicinity of the city are Foy’s Lake, Shitakunda Eco Park, or the picturesque hills offering a relaxing time in the nature. Or those who have less time on hand can go for a shopping spree in the popular shopping complexes just in the walking distance from the hotel.
