Lifestyle

Lifestyle

Bangladesh may not be the most materially affluent destination, but it does possess a number of benefits for the visiting expatriate. Indeed, its many natural wonders are worth exploring, i.e. numerous cascading waterfalls, rugged mountain ranges and Saint Martin’s Island. Of course, there are challenges for western internationals in Bangladesh as well. Bengali is the official language and few speak English. This makes shopping, using public transport, doing personal business and dealing with the government a bit more complicated. Bangladesh is also less safe than most countries and the threat of terrorism is greater. Expats should take things under consideration before relocating.

Cost of Living

Cost of living

Residing in Bangladesh is neither cheap nor unreasonable. Indeed, according to Xpatulator’s July 2016 report, the cost of living in Bangladesh is about at the international average. This becomes apparent when purchasing a variety of goods and services. Some items are bit pricey such as transport, healthcare, an Internet plan and alcohol. On the other hand, groceries, restaurants and retail recreation are inexpensive. Household accommodations, furnishings and clothing are about average. If the teaching expatriate negotiates a compensation package with their international school that reflects living costs in Bangladesh, he or she should be able to live at a comfortable standard.
