Having been forced by the coronavirus pandemic to stay indoors for months, people have begun thronging the tourism hotspots in Cox’s Bazar, Sylhet and other districts.

The government reopened the longest sandy beach of the world to the people on Aug 17 after a shutdown for around five months.

Karim Ullah, the general secretary of Cox’s Bazar Hotel-Motel Officers’ Association, said thousands of tourists were coming every day and the numbers were several times more than those of the same period in the previous years.

More than half of the rooms at most of the hotels in the beach city are booked now, which Karim said is unusual for the off-peak season.
