Day trip to Chittagong Shipbreaking Yards
$241 per person
This is a special day trip to the Chittagong shipbreaking yards for photography and learning about fascinating facts. A day in Chittagong is not enough, this amazing, unexplored city has more to offer. Travellers’ physical fitness, flexibility and willingness to accept some uncertainties are required on this trip. This trip depends on river tides, weather and some other local circumstances, like walking through deep mud to reach a shipbreaking yard. Our main goal is to get the most out of the day.
A photographer will find hundreds of stories to follow for a day around shipbreaking yards, fishermen’s villages, morning fish markets, flea markets, old towns, shipbuilding yards, salt harvesting and refining old fashion industry, various recycling industries, old bazaar areas, Karnaphuli River and architectures.
Bangladesh’s second largest and commercially important port city, standing on the northern bank of the Karnaphuli River, has the busiest seaport. Chittagong has a population of around 8.6 million (in 2017). The climate is pleasant year-round; it becomes cooler in winter and slightly hot and humid during the summer—the annual rainfall of Chittagong is on average 2735 mm (107.7 in) per year. The Chittagong region is still off the beaten track.
