DIY travelers will enjoy getting further off the tourist trail by discovering some of the other population centers surrounding Cox's Bazar.
Take a trip to Bangladesh's historic ruins, it's a great way to familiarize yourself with the area's rich past. If you want to stay indoors, it's hard to go past Bangladesh's excellent art museums. These are great spots to learn a little about the region's rich cultural tapestry and find a unique souvenir or two.
Relax upon the water by going water skiing or boating.
Sometimes, the most rewarding travel memories can be found in local restaurants and cafés. Two of the region's key cooking ingredients are lentils and beef. Dal (lentils) and horioh maas (golden mustard fish curry) are commonly enjoyed by travelers and residents. Bangladesh dishes such as goja (sweet) are also great to try. Have a taste of one of the more common beverages like akher rosh (sugar cane juice).
For those who plan on traveling by plane, it's good to remember that the most convenient major airport is Shah Amanat International Airport, 55 miles (89 kilometers) to the north of Cox's Bazar.
