There is probably more to interest the visitor in Ramu than in nearby Cox’s Bazar.

Even the river beaches, relatively unspoilt, and replete with fishermen, travellers and traders with such exotic merchandise as timber and bamboo, are far less crowded and rather more interesting than the resort beaches at Cox’s Bazar.

Cox’s Bazar, despite its relatively recent naming, about 1800, for Captain Hiram Cox a notable of the east India Company administration in India who died there in 1799, thereby gaining some immortality, has, itself, some history, but none as notable as that of Ramu.

As a centre for shopping, sightseeing, luxuriating in a river boat ride, and such rides can be taken too as two or three day camping trips into the Bandarban, or just relaxing in the excellent ‘Tea Stall’ snackeries on either side of the river, this could well make an ideal holiday destination.
