Lying on the banks of the river of Kirtonkhola, Barisal is a small city of lights and laughter that is ideal for a weekend getaway. It has shimmering lakes and beautiful architectural sites, and you can enjoy both the city, and its natural surroundings, on the same trip.
The Guthia Mosque located in the city is perhaps the most iconic tourist attraction, and it is a must-visit. In addition, the floating guava market held on boats is another experience you do not want to miss, as it is quite the spectacle. If you want to enjoy nature further, you can visit the Durga Sagar lake and take a boat out or go kayaking.
