The Post Office

A sign for a post office

The postal system can be somewhat unreliable, and if one wishes to be absolutely certain that a letter or package will reach its destination, it may be best to use commercial mail services.

In post offices, there are specific boxes with the names of various destinations. Each section of a city has at least one post office, and each village will has one as well. In Bangladesh, stamps are sometimes referred to as “tickets.”
