Bangladesh Tourism Board had invited 26 foreign journalists and tour operators from 10 countries to visit some of Bangladesh’s most attractive tourist destinations. Hailing from Japan, Thailand, China, UK, Belgium, South Korea, Lebanon, the Netherlands, Italy, and Spain, the invited guests reached Bangladesh on 13 April, 2019. Among them was Sebastian Dunn, a British actor famous for his roles in Downtown Abbey and Arrow.
Out of the places visited, the journalists were dazzled with Cox’s Bazar, particularly the sandy beach of Mermaid Beach Resort at Pechar Dwip in Himchori. The visitors highlighted the 128-km long sandy beach, and were optimistic that tourists around the world would love to visit this corner of Bangladesh again and again! Mermaid, in particular, took their attention as they enjoyed quality time in various activities, or just relaxing, while savouring the organic local spread of the region.
