“Online Travelers Carnival” has kicked off last tuesday at the University of Dhaka (DU). Honurable Tourism & Civil Aviation Minister A K M Shahjahan Kamal Inagurated the prestigious event along with the Chairman BPC Mr. Akhtaruz Zaman Khan Kabir.
NHTTI Principal Mr. Parvez A Chowdhury said In the age of digital Bangladesh, it seems very natural that travel enthusiasts will have an online hub. Facebook groups have been popular for sharing advice on travelling for a while now. The most popular social media in Bangladesh has now become a platform for people to gather and share or seek information about travelling around the country
In the last five years or so, young Bangladeshis have become more and more interested to see their own country. A place like Sajek becoming a popular travel destination for young travellers is testament to this sharp rise of interest among the young people to see the beauty of their own country, and not just lean towards vacations abroad.
The second iteration of the event garnered much attention from the online travelling communities of Bangladesh.
The program was arranged by the Bangladesh Parjatan Corporation in collaboration with Tourism and Hospitality Management department of DU.
