Amazing Boat Bridge on Buriganga River

You have seen so many magnificent bridges all around the world. But have you seen such a bridge completely made of boats? This amazing boat bridge is located in Bangladesh on the river Buriganga.

People used to cross the river Buriganga by boats. But the growth of water hyacinth has hampered the movement of boats on the river. To solve the problem of transportation a group of boatmen came up with a bright idea. They have taken 34 small boats and connected them together to create the floating bridge.

A fare of BDT 2 is charged per person allowing the boatmen to make an alternative form of income until they are able to resume boating. Creative work!
