Out of different problems, the researcher has concentrated his focus on the institutional frameworks and different potential tourist spot for profitable tourism sector in Bangladesh. It is due to low literacy rate of general people, they cannot communicate with the domestic and foreign tourists significantly. So, the tourists felt discourage to visit repeatedly to the tourist spots as they always hunt for new place and new test. The researcher feels that institutional backup is necessary for this industry. Governmental and private owner should come up to invest some of their capital for the sake of tourism development. In some International Hotels, Parjatan Corporation and at private level tourist agencies very limited scope on the training job has been developed. Here, the researcher tried to explore the most promising tourist spots that could be commercially profitable for the poor country like Bangladesh.
