Bangladesh is a land of rivers (600+), including three major river systems: the Brahmaputra-Jamuna, the Ganges-Padma, and the Meghna. These three rivers merge together to form the world’s largest delta, which is a unique geographical feature of Bangladesh. A river cruise in Bangladesh is a unique experience that allows you to discover the natural beauty, rich cultural heritage, and diverse way of life of the country.
The river cruise has a rich heritage starting with the Paddle Steamer during the British Period But the life period of the heritage ride has ended but kept its descendants. There are three types of river cruises available in Bangladesh, and each offers a different experience.

The regular passenger vessel is a large boat that travels overnight from Dhaka to various destinations, including Barishal, Hularhut, Vola, and Monpura. These vessels can accommodate a large number of people, typically over 1000, and offer comfortable private cabins, dining rooms, and other amenities.
