The modern Cox’s Bazar derives its name from Captain Hiram Cox (died 1799), an officer of the British East India Company. Cox was appointed Superintendent of Palongkee outpost after Warren Hastings became Governor of Bengal. Captain Cox was specially mobilised to deal with a century-long conflict between Arakan refugees and local Rakhains. He embarked upon the task of rehabilitating refugees in the area and made significant progress. Captain Cox died in 1799 before he could finish his work. To commemorate his role in rehabilitation work, a market was established and named Cox’s Bazar (“Cox’s Market”) after him.

Today, Cox’s Bazar is one of the most-visited tourist destinations in Bangladesh, though it is not a major international tourist destination. In 2013, the Bangladesh Government formed the Tourist Police unit to better protect local and foreign tourists, as well as to look after the nature and wildlife in the tourist spots of Cox’s Bazar.

A Day In World Largest Sea Beach Cox’s Bazar

A Day In World Largest Sea Beach
Cox’s Bazar
sudden plan and decided to spend a night beside beach, to feel the night cool breeze, sea wave sounds, 4 hours bus journey to cox’s bazar starting from Chittagong- “Bohoddarhaat Bus Terminal”. I was lucky, this time. since it was not a tourists season the beach was quite n city was calm…Hotels were non reserved. i started at at 2;30pm an got down at 8;30pm and took a tempo(local ride) to beach gate, it cost me only 15/-tk to ride tempo.
so finally ive reached to the beach and rented beach chair for 6 hours with 180/-tk ( 30tk per hour). i wrote earlier , i wanted to spend a night under the mighty sky near beach,
lot of good experience on the beach… meet new peoples , guides, family peoples. Bangladeshi peoples are very friendly. if foreigners wana visit cox’s bazar the must leave their beach suits n bikinis behind , because Bangladesh is very reserved and religious place, and we must respect their beliefs.
i have eaten  many local foods, but “chatpati’ & “Fuska” and fried and curried crabs and sea foods are main attractions, and the price is very good.
lot of wild dogs on the beach but if u feed them once they turn to your friend.. and i made one to company me .
more things are left to write , but i want all readers to try and to visit here and have rest of the experiences.
