Cox'sBazar-The Largest Seabeach in the World

 ##Cox's Bazar is a town, a fishing port and charming district in Bangladesh's south eastern part. It has wide sandy beach, which is the world's longest natural sandy sea beach It is an unbroken 125 km sandy sea beach with a gentle slope. It is situated at 150 km southeast of Chittagong. Cox’s Bazar is also known by the name Panowa, the local translation of which means yellow flower. Its other old name was Palongkee. The modern Cox's Bazar name came from Captain Cox (died 1799), an officer serving in British India. In the 18th century, an officer of British East India company, Captain Hiram Cox was sent as a Superintendent of Palongkee outpost after Warren Hastings became the Governor of Bengal. Captain Cox was specially mobilised to deal with a century long conflict between Arakan refugees and local Rakhains. He embarked upon the mammoth task of rehabilitating refugees in the area, and made huge progress. A sudden death took Captain Cox in 1799 before he could finish his work. But the work he had done earned him a place in the hearts of the locals and to commemorate his role in rehabilitation work a market was established and named after him as Cox's Bazaar (Cox's Market).Cox's Bazar is one of the most visited tourist destinations in Bangladesh.It has yet to become a major international tourist destination, due to lack of publicity.
