Sightseeing around the Bandarban

When we got out and about, this is some of what we saw.

Golden Temple or Pagoda

While in the Bandarban, we took a short trip through the pouring rain to visit the Golden Temple or Golden Pagoda, one of the largest Buddhist temples in Bangladesh. It was spectacular with lots of gold paint plus had spectacular views across the surrounding countryside.
Here it is:
This was taken while travelling back down the 4WD track from the temple. Not quite how it was meant to work out but I like it all the same.

Hillside Resort in the Bandarban

More than a week ago, a group of us went on a long weekend trip to the Bandarban. This is a forested, hilly region of Bangladesh on the Burma border. It was so good to get into the fresh air, amongst the greenery and away from the crowds of staring people.
Here's some pictures of the resort we stayed at: Hillside Resort

What a view! This is from the verandah outside the restaurant at the Hillside Resort.
