Standing on the shore, I have seen the sunset many times. The sun is slowly sinking into the abyss like an egg yolk. This image, this scene we usually see standing on the beach. But if that happens, you're in the middle of the ocean; The twilight sun has colored the sea and you in its red light. Just waves and waves all around. Once you see, the sea of red water is slowly swallowing the sun. The moment seems to pass in a daze.
Darkness is another surprise. The color of the sea has changed. Darkness all around. It's getting late. Then look around again, you will see the lights shining like distant stars on the giant ships in the outer anchorage. Now turn back to the river Karnafuli and the estuary of the Bay of Bengal. Same! It's like a festival somewhere. Tarabati is burning in that festival. The lights of these ships. You will come back in the mood of such a festival. The Western Marine Service has given this opportunity to see the sea. Their cruise, the Western Cruise, takes travelers to sea two days a week on favorable weather days. There are various aspects of happiness. Showing magic, listening to music, etc.
More tourism-friendly initiatives like Western Cruise can enhance the prestige of the city as well as make it attractive to domestic and foreign tourists. Just as nature has given us so much, so too have many historically important installations and areas. Lack of initiative has made it unattractive to tourists. Patenga beach at the edge of this town. The place where the river and the sea meet. Parky Beach is a short walk beyond the city. In the middle of the city is the eye-catching Lake Fay's Lake. There are great entertainment arrangements. Eco Park, ancient Chandranath Temple and Buddhist Temple at Sitakunda before entering the main town. Millions of people gather at Shivchaturdashi Mela in February every year. In town There is a wire cemetery commemorating World War II. Shrine of Bar Auliya. Bhatiari Military Academy. Ethnographic Museum of Agrabad. Zia Memorial Museum. Batali hills. Chittagong Zoo. Agrabad and Kazir Deuri Children's Park. Shrine of Bayazid Bostami. Shrine of Amanat Shah. Revolution Garden. Patenga Butterfly Park. Kalurghat Independence Park. Chittagong University was established in the village of Jobra in the hills. Kaptai Lake is a two and a half hour drive from the city. Banshkhali Eco Park. Mahamaya project of Mirsarai.
There are so many. However, there is no initiative of government, non-government and related organizations to make these natural and historical places attractive. Compared to other districts, tourism in Chittagong is neglected in many ways. An era has passed since the only motel beach was demolished. The construction work is going on. No new tourist spot is being created. The old ones are not being reformed either. There is no system to show the tourist spots of Chittagong. The big hotels in the city did not provide any transportation for their guests or local tourists. Can't any organization or tourist corporation launch a tourist bus in this city on certain days of the week? We have everything, but we can't use them properly. Our situation is like that unfortunate cowherd. Who has two or three milking cows,But there is no container or marketing system for that milk. With proper supervision and proper use, Chittagong can be one of the most famous tourist cities in the world. Then you can find more beautiful experiences like standing in the middle of the sea and watching the sunset.
