After Lunch After lunch, your guide will take you to Sonargaon (means golden city), 27km to the east which was the capital of Bengal from the 13th to early 17th Century during the Chandra and Deva dynasty. The city of Panam was a flourished city in those days. In 1611, the Sultanate collapsed under the pressure from the Mughal expansion, and the Mughals considered the location too exposed to the Portugese and the Mogh pirates and thus established Dhaka as their capital. You can also visit the folklore museum at Sonargaon.
Instead of Sonargaon, a trip to Savar is also possible, around 35km from Dhaka. You will visit the National Martyr's Monument upon arrival. This 50m high and beautifully kept structure was built as a memorial for the millions who died in the liberation war during 1971.

Days 2-8 Sundarbans "The Mangrove Forest" Home of Royal Bangal Tiger"
The Sundarbans, covering an area of 5770 sq. km of land and water, is the largest mangrove forest in the world, which has protected Bengal Tigers from natural disasters. Crocodiles, deers, wild boars, otters, over 260 species of birds, etc., are also found in this forest, besides being the habitat of the Royal Bengal Tigers. An expression "brave Bengalee" symbolized the history of people who have cultivated and developed the land confronting the danger of tigers. Some people still work in the jungle without fear of tiger, to seek natural blessings such as honey, fish, and timbers. You may be able to see them in dry season.

For miles and miles around, visitors can see the tea gardens spread like green carpets over the plain land or on sloping hills. The region has very high precipitation, and its rainforests are habitat of hanuman monkeys, other rare species of wild animals, and birds.
