The peak season for Bangladesh tourism is now, but Bangladesh tourists spots like Cox’s Bazar are deserted. The Asian country’s tourism sector has been hit hard due to the prevailing uncertainty and unrest created. The reason is the upcoming national election on Sunday.

Inbound and domestic tourists are discouraged and barred to travel at the tourist hot spots in Bangladesh as the administration has imposed various restrictions.

Major hotels, motels and resorts have been facing low occupancy rate in the prominent tourist spots even on New Years night out of fear and uncertainty among people.

Industry sources said the administration has instructed the hoteliers not to allow or restrict the guests after today (Saturday).

Moreover, the two-day restriction on vehicular movement across the country has made the tourists more afraid to stay in areas frequented by tourists.

Cox’s Bazar is a town on the southeast coast of Bangladesh. It’s known for its very long, sandy beachfront, stretching from Sea Beach in the north to Kolatoli Beach in the south. Aggameda Khyang monastery is home to bronze statues and centuries-old Buddhist manuscripts. South of town, the tropical rainforest of Himchari National Park has waterfalls and many birds. North, sea turtles breed on nearby Sonadia Island.

Hotels are empty after they expected record bookings for the new year celebration.

Foreigners are not coming to Bangladesh due to the elections and restriction on visas

On the domestic tourism movement, most of the families who usually travel to different holiday spots during winter are avoiding travel fearing uncertainty after the election, industry insiders said.
