My Suggestion: Because of long-distance i personally suggest for travelling AC Business or Sleeping service categories. If your budget is tight, I personally recommend all of my users to travel AC Executive Class. For the full family tour, AC bus service is more than better with others. Travel time at night is most preferable. I personally try to avoid non AC bus as Dhaka to Cox’s Bazar long journey.
