Sundarbans the world's largest mangrove forest has got all the potentialities to uphold naturebased tourism in Bangladesh. Tourists coming from in and outside the country can get the opportunity to gaze the beauty of Sundarbans in their own eyes if proper accommodation and recreational facilities are provided which is currently unavailable in this region. On the other hand the environmental aspect of Sundarbans needs to be considered while building any structure inside the forest. Mongla is nearest upzila near Sundarbans from where the forest is easily accessible can be a suitable place for developing tourism facilities. Bangladesh Parjatan Corporation has realized this fact and planned to build a tourist resort in Mongla. This resort can work as a transitional space with proper accommodation and relaxation facilities for the tourists travelling Sundarbans. The aim of the resort is to harmonize with the beauty of Sundarbans without disrupting the ecological balance of the forest and to provide relaxation in the midst of the nature for the tourists. A nature based resort in Mongla can certainly accomplish this objective by regenerating the beauty of Sundarbans.
