Though the ‘riverain’ image of Bangladesh has kind of lost its potential recently with the advancement of roads and highways along with a few helping hands of river pollution, still a vast population of our country is dependent on riverways for traveling.
Constant development in launch vessels in riverways succeeded in keeping this alternative traveling option an affordable and meaningful one.
Ticketing for such travel can be a gruesome experience, with reaching its peak during the Eid holidays. Not to worry, though; the online revolution has made that easier. Now you can buy launch tickets online from anywhere, anytime. Here are three quick reviews of online sites from where you can buy launch tickets in Bangladesh.
The very first online bus/launch ticket-buying site in our country was Shohoz.com. As the kick-starter, they had the ability and potential to reach out to the mass population remarkably. With dedicated service and simplification, Shohoz.com has become a popular online bus/launch ticket booking choice for many tourists and travelers.

An initiative of Robi Axiata Ltd., Bdtickets.com stands alone with great service and potential. Both bus and launch tickets are available to book at Bdtickets.com with ease. Currently, a few routs of launch have been covered by the bdtickets.com service policy.
The fun part of Bdtickets.com is that it offers great discounts every day. You can find the discount offer on the website regularly. Usually, an offer lasts for about a month period. The user interface is a very simple and lovely one. Just fill up the departure and destination point with a traveling date and search for availability.
Payment Options: Visa, Mastercard, DBBL Nexus, bKash, DBBL, MCash, Surecash, My Cash, IFIC Mobile Bank, IBBL, Cash on Delivery, Robi Sheba.

Another concern of busbd.com.bd. A successful enterprise of bus ticketing service has inspired another effort in launch ticketing. The site has a well-groomed search option to find out the availability of tickets for desired routes.
Though the site is yet to be developed and still includes many more routes and launch options, it can currently meet the need for many travelers to travel through major routes of the riverways.
Available Launch Operators: MV Moushumi, Keari Tours and Services Ltd, and MV Pubali 1.
Payment Options: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, DBBL Nexus, bKash, DBBL, EBL, Surecash, IFIC Mobile Banking, City Bank.
