Chittagong, the second largest city of Bangladesh and a busy international seaport, is an ideal vacation spot that you have overlooked. Describe by the Chinese traveler poet, Huen Tsang (7th century A.D) as a "sleeping beauty emerging from mists and water" Chittagong is full of green hills and forests, broad sandy beaches and a comfortable cool climate. it almost seems out of place with the image most tourists habe of Bangladsh.

The newest jewel in the crown of Chittagong is the Zia Memorial Complex which just opened at the end of May.

Visitors will get chance of enjoying replica's of the country's many archaeological sites including the national assembly (Jatiya Sangsad) building, Central Shaheed Minar, Curzon Hall, Ahsan Manzil, Darbar Hall, and South Gate of Lalbagh Fort in Dhaka, National Martyr's Memorial in Savar, Kantaji Temple in Dinajpur, Bhuddist Temple in Pharpur, Chota Kutir and Bara Kutir in Rajshahi and Shat Gambuj Mosque in Khulna.

A number of rides for the children, including cable car and electric train, also have been set up in the complex, inaddition to a still-under construction 52-meter high watchtower, which will house a revolving restaurant and provide a breathtaking view of the city.

Back in the real world, Chittagong boasts the Shahi Jama-e-Masgid and Qadam Mubarak Mosque- two of the most impressive buildings in the city. It is also worth visiting the Ethnological Musium in the modern city which has interesting displays on Bangladesh's tribal peoples.

Chittagong - like the capital city of Dhaka - is going through massive infrastructure development. There are plenty of high-rise buíldings, Shopping malls, and commercial plazas being constructed. Work has started for a twin tower (20 storied) world trade centre. All this work in progress has given Chittagong the new nickname of "sky Scraper City".
