A pleasant mixture of diverse cultures from different backgrounds is what makes the city of Barishal lively. Around the city, explorers will encounter deteriorating Raj structures, beautiful mosques, and vibrant Hindu temples. Barishal is surprisingly walkable, unlike many other cities in Bangladesh, and has a number of parks and ponds all across the city. It is rewarding to visit the busy harbour region in the early morning when products and passengers come from different places.
