Feni is a small southern district of Bangladesh , bordering (clockwise from the north) Tripura in India , Chittagong district, the Bay of Bengal , Noakhali district and Comilla district. It is comprised of six sub-districts ("Upazilas"): Feni Sadar , Chhagalnaiya , Porshuram , Fulgazi , Daganbhuiyan and Sonagazi .

Before becoming a full-fledged district in 1984 , it was part of the Noakhali district. Feni has a moderate climate, and a rich history dating back almost 3000 years. It has a large contingent of its population residing in the Middle East and other parts of the world. Two years back, a Feni native, Abul Kashem, was in the news when he was captured by Iraqi insurgents while driving a truck for a Kuwaiti company. He was subsequently released without any harm.

The main highway of Bangladesh , Dhaka-Chittagong inter-district highway passes through Feni. Buses usually take 3-4 hours to traverse the 165 km distance from Dhaka and around 2.5 hours from Chittagong . Panaromic landscape comprising of the Tripura valley, Feni River estuarine and green paddy fields add to Feni district's scenic beauty.
