Cox's BazarThe longest natural beach in the world.
Cox's Bazar in Bangladesh is a paradise for beach lovers. With its golden sands, crystal blue waters and stunning sunsets, it's no wonder why this place is sometimes called the "Southeast Asian Riviera". Explore the local markets, go fishing, and marvel at the scenic beauty of the area, from the nearby hills to the shimmering waters of the Bay of Bengal. The region is also known for its unique cuisine, which features dishes such as biryani, roasted fish, and prawns. With its friendly locals, stunning scenery, and delicious food, Cox's Bazar is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
The city derives its name from Captain Hiram Cox, an officer of the British East India Company, a Superintendent of Palongkee outpost. To commemorate his role in refugee rehabilitation work, a market was established and named after him. Today, the Kutupalong refugee camp with more than a million Rohingya refugees is in Cox's Bazar.
