Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) has introduced three open-top double-decker buses on Marine Drive Road in Cox’s Bazar to enhance the experience for tourists.

The first journey commenced from Cox's Bazar city's Laboni intersection with one of BRTC's double-decker open-top buses at 9:00 am on Wednesday.

Passengers seated on the upper deck enjoyed a breathtaking view as the bus traversed the Marine Drive Road, providing a captivating blend of mountains and sea.

The 80-kilometre-long Cox's Bazar-Teknaf Marine Drive Road, known for its scenic beauty with the azure sea on one side and picturesque hills on the other, has become an enchanting destination for tourists.

The upper deck seats are priced at Tk 700 per person, while the lower deck seats are available at Tk 600 per person. Along the journey, the buses will make stops at six tourist spots for 20 to 45 minutes.

With an additional cost of Tk 200, travellers will have the opportunity to relish lunch at Patuwar Tek during the approximately nine-hour trip.

In the evening, tourists on the bus will have the chance to enjoy the beauty of the sunset at Darianganagar by the seaside. The district administration will oversee the overall management of these tourist buses.

The authorities anticipate that these tourist buses will further enhance the attraction for tourists visiting Cox's Bazar, similar to open-top buses in advanced tourist destinations worldwide.
