The climate of Chittagong (Bangladesh)
Chittagong is an important port in the southern part of Bangladesh on the Karnaphuli River. The city is situated between the Bay of Bengal and the Chittagong hills. It is one of the most important commercial centers in Bangladesh. Chittagong has always been an important trading place. Arabs came here to trade in spices as early as the 9th century AD. Because of the international character of Chittagong there is a mixture of all kinds of cultures, nationalities and faiths which all had their influence on the city. These influences can be found in many old buildings. Mosques can be found as well as beautiful old temples and churches; Portuguese architecture and British colonial buildings. The buildings breathe history.
Chittagong has a tropical monsoon climate. This type of climate is characterized by a long rainy period, the monsoon. Heavy rainfall can be expected from May till September. The only dry months are December and January. Temperatures are high all year round; especially during the monsoon it can be really warm. In combination with high humidity figures this gives you an unpleasant feel.
