How to describe Cox's bazar in few words?

Miles of golden sands, towering cliffs, surfing waves, rare conch shells, colorful pagodas, Buddhist temples and tribes, delightful sea-food--that is Cox's Bazar. Having the world's longest beach sloping gently down to the blue waters of the Bay of Bengal, Cox's Bazar is one of the most attractive tourist attractions in Bangladesh.    

The name 'Cox's Bazar' comes from Captain Hiram Cox, a Brit, who founded the town as a refuge for the Arakanese (who, you say?), who were fleeing their homes after the invasion of the Burmese.

Location:

Cox's Bazar is on the south-easterly tip of Bangladesh, not far from the border with Myanmar (Burma) - the weird extra 'bit' at the bottom of Bangladesh, almost as an afterthought. The region was frequented by the Mogh pirates, along with the Portuguese, who ravaged the Bay of Bengal in the 17th century.

 Tourist Attractions near the Cox's Bazar:

The beach is the main attraction of the town though Cox's Bazar and its adjoin areas have a lot of things to see and places deserve visit by the tourists.  Larger hotels provide exclusive beachside area with accessories for the hotel guests. Visitors in other hotels visit the Laboni beach which is the area of the beach closest to the town. Other than the beach there are several places of interest near the town which can easily be visited from town center.

Near the Cox’s Bazar city there are several places to visit which places are really attractive for the tourists. Himchari, Laboni Beach, Sonadia Island, Maheshkhali, Teknaf, ST Martin Island etc places are really exciting and enjoyable spot for the viewers.                      

The main attraction of Cox’s Bazar is the world longest but least-crowded sandy beach which stretches from the mouth of the Bakkhali River and going all the way to Teknaf. There are a few very old wooden Buddhist temples at Ramu, a few kilometers from Cox's Bazar, well worth visiting.

Located at a distance of 152 km. south of Chittagong, the leading seaport of Bangladesh, Cox's Bazar is connected both by air and road from Dhaka and Chittagong. Teknaf, which is the southernmost tip of the mainland of Bangladesh, is a memorable journey. A day trip to either Moheshkhali or Sonadia, the deltaic islands nestled among the gentle waves of the Bay of Bengal, will also be really interesting.

Other attractions for visitors are conch shell market, tribal handicraft, salt and prawn cultivation.
