Natural Beauty Meets Urban Sprawl
Sylhet is a city unlike any other, caught between the personality of a tight-knit small town and the bombastic bustle of a city on the rise. With close ties to many British-Bangladeshi, Sylhet’s lean towards western culture makes the perfect base for anyone craving a taste of Bangladesh. Easily the city’s most iconic feature is the Surma River which runs, like a vein, throughout the city providing locals with respite from the stresses of the metropolis as well as a natural source of income for many fishing operations. It’s impossible to talk about Sylhet without mentioning tea, the city’s biggest export and an unmissable experience for visitors.
