The local law enforcement agencies have stepped up security measures to ensure the tourists' safety The picturesque district of Cox’s Bazar, sitting in the backdrop of lush hills in the south-eastern part of Bangladesh, boasts everything — from the world’s longest sea beach to tropical weather – that makes it a holidaymaker’s paradise. Local tourism businesses in the district have taken all preparation to ensure hassle-free vacation for people visiting the area in the Eid season. A long Eid vacation and favourable weather means thousands of local tourists will throng the area to bask in the sun at sea beaches, explore the famed Saint Martin’s Island, the rocky Inani beach, Ramu’s Buddhist pagodas, Maheshkhali’s Adinath temple, Dulahazra’s Bangabandhu Safari Park, and the Himchhari waterfall, among others. The local law enforcement agencies have stepped up security measures to ensure the tourists’ safety. The Tourist Police, who have garnered praise for their activities, have launched a mobile application to allow people to contact them in case of emergency. But the recent spate of militant attacks on minorities, secular writers, rights activists and foreigners have somewhat dented Bangladesh’s image in the global arena. It has been two months since the country had its worst terror attack when terrorists killed 22 people, mostly foreigners, at an upmarket Dhaka cafe on July 1. The recent attacks seem to have had little impact on foreign tourists.

Old plastic lounge chairs rented out on the beaches have also been painted with different colours to make them appear more attractive. Popular tourist spots were fully prepared to welcome the tourists, Kitkot Business Association President Mahbubur Rahman said. “Every year, tourists usually come here to enjoy their Eid vacation but this time we got huge advance booking,” Vista Bay Resort Manager Kalim Ullah said. “It is a good sign. We have tried our best to attract more and more tourists.” Tourism business suffered massive loss several years ago when political instability rocked the country. burmese market coxs bazar
