Here’s Great Tip: Seeing Bangladesh in a Positive Light: Mikey Leung at TEDxDhaka

Here is Something You Should See…

Bangladesh has long suffered with a negative international image that has hampered economic growth and slowed international tourism development. In this inspirational talk, Mikey Leung shows a new narrative of the country unknown to the rest of the world, while proposing that sustainable tourism could become a new pillar of economic growth and poverty alleviation in Bangladesh.

Mikey Leung is the co-author of The Bradt Travel Guide: Bangladesh. He is using images as a storytelling tool to tell a different story of Bangladesh. He is also the founder of Crowdsourced Travel, a media collective that aims to develop economic opportunities through travel and tourism to developing countries.
“What I’m asking you today is to discover the every day people inside the places you travel. By supporting small scale tourism initiatives, those who need your tourism dollars are more likely to benefit. It’s definitely not the easiest option, but Bangladesh taught me it was far more meaningful to travel this way


About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

  1. In Bangladesh we just try to present the best we can to our guests no matter how poor we are. And if u are foreigner. May god help u. We will grab by ur hand and wont let u go unless u eat something. Yes we are madlads when it comes to hospitality…

  2. Wow thanks welcome to BangladeshIt is a peaceful place to visit 2018 Bangladesh is developing it's not like Pakistan and India. Bangladeshi people are friendly and all religion people live paceful

  3. We should however never undermine the very poverty and political, urbanism and cultural problems in Bangladesh.

    In an optimistic way, it sure is better to improve out country, but we should never limit ourselves by putting "THE BANGLADESHI PEOPLE" in one block. It undermines the fact that there is a huge income disparity and class disparity where the rich and the poor are like day and night and do not value things thw same way.

    Help the poor and make the city greener and cleaner with less cars instead of insinuating that the poor have enough. Non material values are life essentials to make one happy but it sounds very gready for a Westerner to say that they have enough.

    I think my people deserve better.
