Nearby * The '''shipbreaking yards''' near the Indian Ocean are Chittagong's international claim to fame, but for the wrong reasons; these are considered one of the most polluted places on Earth with highly dangerous practices and hazardous working conditions. Green Peace is actively campaigning against them and trying to bring this issue further into the light. Tourists are not usually welcome, but some travelers have been able to sweet talk the gate-keeper and get amazing photos of massive ships being dismantled for parts and steel. There are many breaking yards stretching for miles, so start at one end and try your luck until you have success. Keep your wits about you, safety practices leave something to be desired. It's also wise to keep your camera hidden until you're out of view of the officials, lest you be mistaken for a journalist out to do them harm.

Chittagong

'''Chittagong''' : Porto Grande De Bengala; Mughal (Mughal Empire) Islamabad) is the second most populous city and main seaport of Bangladesh. It is a major commercial, financial and industrial hub. Located on the Karnaphuli River, it is the administrative seat of Chittagong District and Chittagong Division (the largest division (Divisions of Bangladesh) of Bangladesh). The metropolitan area has a population of 4 million residents. The city straddles hilly terrain and faces the Bay of Bengal.

Chittagong has a recorded history dating back more than a millennium. Arabs traded with its port since the 9th-century. It was visited by numerous historic world travellers, such as Ibn Battuta and Niccolo De Conti, as well as the Chinese Imperial Treasure Fleet (Treasure voyages). It gained prominence as a Portuguese (Portuguese Empire) trading center during the 16th-century. Under British rule (British Raj), it was a divisional capital (Chittagong Division) in the Bengal Presidency and the headquarters of the Assam Bengal Railway. The Port of Chittagong developed during the late 19th-century. It was a major gateway for the tea, rice, jute and oil trade in the region. The city and its airport were a vital base for American and British forces during the Burma Campaign in World War II. After the Partition of British India in 1947, Chittagong became the chief port of East Pakistan. During the Bangladesh Liberation War in 1971, the declaration of Bangladesh's independence (Bangladeshi Declaration of Independence) was proclaimed from Chittagong.

The city is home to many of Bangladesh's oldest and largest companies, as well as the Chittagong Stock Exchange and the Chittagong Tea Auction. It is a hub of logistics and heavy industry. The Asian University for Women is based in the city; as are major public universities, including Chittagong University, the Chittagong Medical College and Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology. Important landmarks include the colonial Divisional Court, the Circuit House, Foy's Lake, the Commonwealth War Cemetery (Commonwealth War Cemetery, Chittagong), the Ethnological Museum of Chittagong, the Anderkilla Imperial Jame Mosque, historic Sufi shrines, the Chittagong Buddhist Monastery and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Chittagong.
