How to go:
In the evening from Sadarghat, Tashrif 1/2 (6 hrs), MV Farhan (5.30 hrs) launches leave for Hatiyar. Can go everywhere. On their way back to Dhaka, the Farhan launch at 1.30 pm and the Tashrif launch at 2 pm left Monpura. If you take a cabin, book in advance.
Warning: The whole island is very clean, we have not seen anything unnecessary lying on the road, across the river! Everything was bright and clear. So I hope we don’t do any dirt and people think it’s too easy for us to go to Gula, there is no electricity all day and from 8 to 2 at night.
