Welcome to

Tour Operators Association of Cox’s Bazar (TOAC) where we firmly believe that “Tourism is Travel pleasure or business”. TOAC is a place where ideas are incubated regarding development of Tourism trade and business towards the ultimate goal of an economically prosperous Bangladesh. TOAC is a dynamic Tourism Association having more than 100 members.

Tour Operators Association of Cox’sbazar (TOAC), was formed in the year of 2003. This was the time when a handful of agencies operating tours inside Bangladesh, felt the need of such an association or trade body to overcome immense problems and difficulties being faced by them regularly. Besides this, the other main objective or aim of the organization was to develop and nourish tourism in Bangladesh and to promote tourism products of Bangladesh in the international arena.

Asaf ud doula Asheque is General  Secretary of the Tour Operators Association of Cox’s Bazar (TOAC) since 10 October 2013 after being elected by the 2nd Session of TOAC General Members. I am honored to Serve this unique organization as its General Secretay.

TOAC History

TOAC is working for development of local and regional tourism. Our main objective is to promote our destinations, educating people- creating awareness, establish friendly relationship between neighboring countries, encourage people to tour, preserve nature, culture, heritage, archeology, socialization, assist government in making tourism policy, conduct research works, creating information highway between main stake holders of different countries etc. Help building tourism professionals and assist globalization process through development of tourism.

Tour Operators Association of Cox’sbazar (TOAC), was formed in the year of 2003. This was the time when a handful of agencies operating tours inside Bangladesh, felt the need of such an association or trade body to overcome immense problems and difficulties being faced by them regularly. Besides this, the other main objective or aim of the organization was to develop and nourish tourism in Bangladesh and to promote tourism products of Bangladesh in the international arena.

In tourism, all over the world tourist’s expectations are very high for a hazardless traveling, secured food & lodging, efficient spot-visits, economically cost-effective transaction in every step whether it is a business or a personal recreational tour. To fulfill these demands of an individual or group of tourists the tour operators come into picture and provide all the services they need. They are like one-stop service provider starting from their arrival to departure in case of the overseas tourists and from your house back to your house in case of local tourist either it is inside the country or to a foreign land. In Bangladesh where the infrastructure of this industry is not well developed it is always recommended that a tourist should arrange his travel here through a member of TOAC, which will be more safe and authentic.

TOAC maintains excellent relationship with Cox’sbazar District Administration, Ministry of Civil Aviation and Tourism, Bangladesh Parjatan Corporaton, Bangladesh Tourism Board, Bangladesh Hotel-Resort Owner Association of Travel Agents of Bangladesh, Cruise line owner and other trade bodies. Since the beginning of TOAC, its members have been actively participating in all kind of tourism related events at Cox’sbazar.
