If you have tired of city life, it’s good to know that there’s an awesome place you can visit to release your fatigue life. The city of Hilsa fish is only three and a half hours and about 100km away from Dhaka and is very easy to get to for the daylong trip.
Chandpur is a calm and nice city situated on the banks of Padma, Meghna, and Dakatia. Here is a place called Boro Station where the three rivers meet. This beautiful view will fascinate you.
In Bangladesh, there is the only district which is accessible by three transportation modes Launch(Ferry), Bus, and Train Chandpur. And that is the Chandpur District. The easiest way to reach Chandpur is by Launch. The excursion takes around three and a half hours. You can enjoy the beauty of rivers and the Hilsha fishing scene at Megna.
It would be better to start very early in the morning from Sadarghat Launch terminal. The first Launch leaves at 6.30 in the morning and there’s a launch every 30 minutes after that. You get to see Morning of Dhaka at Buriganga river as a bonus. On the way, you get to watch the river scene like Buriganga, Dhaleswari, Shitalakkha, Brahmaputra, Meghna, etc.
Ferries usually cost 100tk for a deck, 250tk for a seat, and 600tk to 1500tk for a cabin. We suggest going for the deck since getting a place at the roof of the launch. The touch of wind and the open view makes up for the lack of comfortable seats. And yes, it’s perfectly safe. The launch journey is one of the best parts of the entire trip.
You come at Chandpur but don’t try to Hilsa it’s not fair. Chandpur is famous for the abundance of our national fish. So do try Hilsa in any local restaurant. Roam around the city if you want, everything you will see something new. The best attraction of Chandpur tour is the meeting place of three rivers which said before. The name of this place is Boro Station. Another attraction of Chandpur is the Himechor which is also called mini Cox’s Bazar. You can have to go there by boat and cost will 70tk to 100tk per person per hour.
You can also see the Hilsa Sculpture at Boro Station, Angikar sculpture, Rupsha Jomidar Bari, etc. After visiting Chandpur, return to the launch as before. Returning from Chandpur to Dhaka from 3 PM to 12 PM was found. Come back to Dhaka at your convenient time by launch.
We think in this trip every moment will bring you great joy. You will be remembered for many days the time spent there is.
