The World's Longest Beach

Cox's Bazar is 75 miles of uninterrupted sand on the coast of southeast Bangladesh. The locals claim it as the longest sandy sea beach in the world. Though uncrowded and edged by beautiful cliffs, foreign tourists are rare. One reason might be the lack of nightlife, which is restricted by local rules and customs in this Muslim nation.
