‘Mini Cox’s Bazar’ trip to Chandpur.
New place to hang out. But every scene of it is chircena. Water and small waves can be seen lying on the sand char bench. Colorful umbrella over his head, dab seller sitting next to him. They are running scissors on the left as soon as they get a hint! Cox’s Bazar or Patenga beach is not mentioned here. It’s not a beach, just a waking pirate! But when you go there, you think – this is probably the ‘mini version’ of Cox’s Bazar!
I was talking about the chars that arose at the confluence of the Padma, Meghna and Dakatia rivers in Chandpur. Its location is about one and a half kilometers from the district town. The char is the char of the estuary to some, the beach of Chandpur to some, and many call it ‘Mini’ Cox’s Bazar! Someone is coming here in the morning or in the afternoon to see the sunset. Someone is coming again for an hour or two. The crowd of people who love to travel is constantly increasing. Thousands of people are coming to visit this char every day with their families.
Ten minutes waterway from Chandpur city. Reaching the sand dunes, you can see launches, cargo ships and fishermen’s boats catching hilsa. Not only Balur A Char, but also Lakshimara Char to the north. There is also immense potential for tourism. Sefat Ullah, a tourist, said it was a new discovery in Chandpur. Here is the city next door. It is easy to come here as there are all the arrangements locally. Apart from that, other expenses including coming and going trawler rent are very low. Can come again and again.
Not only this spot, there is a plan to renovate the house of Hilsa in Chandpur for the development of tourism industry, which will be implemented gradually, said Kaniz Fatema, Upazila Nirbahi Officer of Chandpur Sadar. Meanwhile, the district administration has said that a large allocation will come soon to enrich the tourism industry in Chandpur.
