Short guideline: Chittagong War Cemetery

Being into World War II and respecting the history of the horrible events happened during that period of time, visiting memorials that remember of that time always interest and touch me. The Chittagong War Cemetery (also known as the Chittagong Commonwealth War Cemetery) is a cemetery for fallen soldiers during World War II from the Commonwealth countries and was my first visit to a cemetery outside of Europe and the memorials in the US. It is not as big as the American Cemetery that is in my backyard in Margraten, but that does not make it impressive as well.

The cemetery was created by the British to honor soldiers of the Commonwealth countries who fought against Japan. Most of the graves are British nationalities.

Cox’s Bazar to St. Martin’s: Longest see beach in the world and the most southern point of Bangladesh

Cox’s Bazar, the longest sea beach in the world. That is quite a statement is it not? But, it is a true one! The sea beach of Cox’s Bazar is long, an astonishing 155 kilometres long! And all those kilometres are unbroken, so 155 kilometres of sand, rocks and sea. Cox’s Bazar is one of the most visited touristic places in Bangladesh.

On the other hand we have St. Martin’s, the most southern point of Bangladesh. St. Martin’s is a small Island (only 8 square kilometres!) about 9 kilometres from the peninsula of Cox’s Bazar – Teknaf. It is also near the Myanmar border, located in the bay of Bengal. The Island is famous for being the only coral island of Bangladesh.

In this blog I will take you on a tour of our 3 nights stay at Cox’s Bazar, including a day trip to St. Martin’s.

48 hours in Shanghai, 3 things to do

This week we concluded our China trip for 2 days in Shanghai. In this blog I will describe which three activities are a must do while you are visiting the city. Shanghai is the biggest city in the country, so of course there is a lot to see and do in the city. We choose to do three main spots which we can vouch for. There are more than 20 million people living in the city, but unlike the more rural areas people do not stare at you as a foreigner. The city really has that international charm, but even in Shanghai English is hard to use as a language!
