The bibliometric analysis presented in this paper has been carried out for the purpose of analyzing the trends and distribution of tourism literature in Bangladesh. The paper focuses on Bangladesh originated papers available in Scopus database only. 117 documents were filtered from 206 documents based on relevance. Annual scientific production, sources, authors and citations were ranked and analyzed to determine the distribution of these variables across the documents. Network analysis using ‘authors’ keywords has been utilized to visualize and analyze the prominent ideas under discussion within the framework of available documents. The analysis revealed several distinct topics namely ecotourism, tourism in Sundarbans, hospitality sector, governance, domestic-regional tourism. Thematic evaluation helped to visualize the evolution or trend in topics being discussed in these documents based on two distinct periods of time. Thematic mapping revealed that the dominant research of tourism literature in Bangladesh has shifted from domestic tourism research to theoretical framework development. It also reveals that the base themes of tourism research have evolved from conservation, biodiversity protection to sustainable tourism. Emerging topic in tourism research is the impact of social media in tourism.
