Rangpur Division is the newest division in Bangladesh, splitting from the Rajshahi Division on 25 January 2010. But it is certainly not the newest tourist hotspot. Outside the capital, Rangpur Division is fairly devoid of attractions and touristy activities. However, don't be disenchanted, as Rangpur is the place to absorb the true Bangladeshi lifestyle, learning of local traditions and culture that have lasted for generations.
