A Floating Bridge in Bangladesh

Monday, December 19, 2011
Genius! I read that the rampant-growing water hyacinth on the Buriganga River in Dhaka gives tons of commute troubles to the locals as it prevents boats from moving freely on the river. So, a group of very clever boatmen came up with a brilliant idea of a floating bridge. They connected 34 wooden dinghies together and they even charge a tiny fee for the service. Doesn't that bridge look super cool? xo

P.S: More amazing travel destinations!
P.P.S: I still can't stop thinking about the Montaña Mágica Lodge.

Alexander's Armies used the same kind of bridges to cross the Indus River when he invaded India around 330 BC!
