We began our trip to Bangladesh at Sadarghat. It was a literal feast for the senses. We climbed atop a moored boat and watched the controlled chaos in the river, as small and large boats all negotiated their way through the water. Our first day in Dhaka, it was all at once beautiful, powerful and completely overwhelming. I loved watching... More

Also added to its woes the river water is so... More

It is very unfortunate the way we maintain the river front of Buriganga. In our counties neighbourhood they utilise river front so beautifully that it becomes an MUST visit tourist attraction, like the River city in Thailand. The government should come forward to clean the water and make the place a beautiful one as it deserves.

If you want to look around the old part of the capital city then you can have a quick visit in Sadarghat. This is the largest launch station in the country where intercity launch depart and arrive. However, keep in mind the place is very dirty and crowded and also the way to Sadarghat is not that pleasant journey due... More

I found it extremely busy place in Dhaka. So many peoples are here and there, enter and depart in/from launch from various part of the country. I did not have enough time to catch a launch and travel an overnight journey. They have 1st class, 2nd class and lower class. A very popular transportation in Dhaka.

Its not only a river port, all aspects of life can be seen here; transportation through river, trade and business, a teaching point for learning the evolution of the terminology "Environmental Pollution"---a laboratory for the researchers those who spend their lives revealing the causes of changes that occurs on earth.

It's a complex place. Easy for people who has knowledge about how to find what but difficult for some who are new. One can catch really large launches for visiting south e.g Barisal, Patuakhali or Bhola even Hatia to Nijhombwip. Please arrange for advance booking if you want a/c cabins for your visit. If that is not a requirement, then... More
