During the month of Ramadan, Cox's Bazar remained quiet without tourists; however, businessmen are anticipating a surge in visitors to the beach city during the upcoming five-day holiday for Eid-ul-Fitr and Pohela Boishakh.

More than 500 hotels, motels and guest houses, restaurants and tourism-related organizations have made all preparations for their reception. 

Business owners reported losses last month, but now more than 50% of the rooms in the city's hotels and motels have been booked for the Eid holidays. 

They are hopeful that all bookings will reach 100% capacity before Eid.

Md Abdur Rahman, a businessman in Cox's Bazar, stated that all arrangements have been finalized to greet tourists during the upcoming five-day holiday. 

In anticipation of the influx of visitors, it is recommended that they conduct online searches beforehand to avoid any inconvenience of paying additional rent or struggling to secure hotel accommodations.

Cox's Bazar Kolatali Hotel-Motel Owners Association General Secretary Moukhim Khan said that Cox's Bazar will be crowded with millions of tourists during the Eid holidays. 

So hotels, motels, resorts and restaurants have been rearranged. Considering the demand of tourists, new products are being brought into the shops, he added.

Additional DIG of Tourist Police Cox's Bazar Zone Apel Mahmud said more than 150,000 tourists are expected to visit Cox's Bazar every day during the five-day holiday from Wednesday to April 14. 

Additional police have been deployed along with patrol teams on the beach. CC cameras have been installed at various points, he added.
