History

The history of Bangladesh starts with the Partition of India in 1947. Control of Bangladesh, which was previously under British rule, transferred to Pakistan, and Bangladesh was known as East Pakistan at this time. In the 1970s, after a disputed election in Pakistan, Bangladesh broke out in protests, and after an Indian military intervention, Bangladesh became independent from Pakistan. A new democratic government with socialist characteristics was established.

Transportation

"Beside rickshaws, auto-rickshaws (widely known as CNGs), regular taxicabs, easy bikes, air conditioned buses, trains and airplanes are used when travelling within Bangladesh. Auto-rickshaws are also an environment friendly form of transport because they use Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) as fuel, hence their name." - TripAdvisor
