parasailingPata New Frontiers Forum 2016 unveiled the untapped tourism potential of Bangladesh on 24th November, thanks to the technical tour organised by PATA in collaboration with the Bangladesh Tourism Board.


The tour kickstarted at the BIWTA Ghat, where the delegates of the event boarded speedboats, arriving at a spectacular island of Bangladesh named Maheshkhali via the Maheshkhali Channel.


Here, they enjoyed a visit to the ancient Adinath Temple, a shrine dedicated to the Hindu god, Lord Shiva. Furthermore, they also thronged the Buddhist monastery located at Boro Raikhaine in this region.


Thereafter, the delegates explored ‘Sampan’, a term used to describe a flat-bottomed Chinese wooden boat, at the beautiful beach of Mermaid Resort.


This technical tour also shed light on some of the fun-filled beach activities that makes Bangladesh really popular among tourists. Parasailing is one of the several thrilling aquatic sports that trigger an adrenaline rush among a large number of domestic as well as international tourists.


However, according to Shamsur Rahman Shimul, the owner of Satellite Vision Sea Sports that operates a parasailing business at Himchori Beach, though this beach activity has immense potential to draw foreign tourists, not many travellers are aware of this marvellous beach activity. Delegates felt that the best part about parasailing here is that it challenges fear, leaving people craving for more.


Rahman Shimul also added that Bangladesh is planning to introduce flying boats.


These boats would be composed of microlite and would be inflatable. They would be well-secured and operated by experienced pilots, and is believed to attract a generous amount of tourists to this part of the world.


Some of the other beach events that find favour among tourists are the jet ski ride and the tours that takes tourists to the Sonadia Islands.
