I'm far away from the sea to Hamburg I have a longer distance as to Venice or Genova.
My favorite is the Suezchannel, Panamacannal  and since 2006 also Chinese harbours. I've a lot of pictures and I don't show them because here at shipspotting.com is a copyright problem

Hi Peter,

Check out this blog:

http://www.travelyourassoff.com/2012/01/abandon-ship-chittagong-ship-breaking.html

I met the same guide the author of the blog was talking about, Rahmat from Avenue Hotel & Suites. In the end I did not use his services, but I think it could be the starting point.

I know how "go to the place X and ask for Rahmat" sounds, but this means that the local hotel employees are not strangers to foreigners asking for tours of breaking yards, and the presence of the locals is essential for any visit to scrapyards anyway.
