Tahiti to Bora Bora, Bangladesh, & Portugal travel articles

It’s been a while since I searched for interesting news articles to share so I figured I’d see what’s out there.

Here we have a Portugal “itinerary” – it’s not specific but they do mention a few things to do in each place: Lisbon, After Lisbon, Sintra, drive to the Alentejo region and Evora. Or Lisbon, Oporto, and then the winemaking region of the Douro River Valley.

Here’s an old one from this blog.

This article has some interesting stuff on traveling in Bangladesh. I don’t know why they start with this quote though: “The south Asian country seems an unlikely stop on a budget traveller’s itinerary…” because poorer countries have always been attractive to budget travelers. But the rest of the article is great and really sells Bangladesh for not only the low cost but also the high adventure:

Even a four-day all-inclusive cruise through the world’s largest mangrove forest on a traditional wooden boat will only cost around 150 dollars, far cheaper than a comparable trip in neighbouring India, experts say.

Bangladesh is one of only a few places left in the region that still offer the original pioneering travel experience, according to Lonely Planet’s Bangladesh author Stuart Butler.

This article talks about including a few South-Pacific islands on your itinerary. Papeete in Tahiti, a trip to the “wild coast”, Moorea, the private island of Vahine, Bora Bora, and then Tahaa. Of course the author talks about how beautiful everything is. The article does note that a travel agent is the way to pull this off. They recommend one but it may be one that gave them a special deal in exchange for the recommendation in the article.
