The Culture, Sports and Tourism Department, under Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), is surveying the Khlong Prawet Burirom canal, followed by the Khlong Bang Luang canal next year, in pursuit of new tourist attractions, said Somboon Homnan, the department’s deputy director-general, on Tuesday (November 19).
He cited an published article suggesting that Thailand should promote tourism along some of the 1,825 canals in the country as international tourists are keen on taking boat trips to see the traditional Thai ways of living.
“We are conducting a survey of Khlong Prawet Burirom canal and in 2020, we will turn to the Khlong Bang Luang canal, where many floating markets are located. Tourism routes will be developed in joint efforts between related authorities and the local communities.”
Meanwhile, the Traffic and Transportation Department and Krungthep Thanakom Co (KT), have organised free boat trips from Bang Wa Pier to Wat Kamphaeng Bang Chak Pier near Khlong Bang Luang Market on weekends and public holidays, from 8am to 6pm.
In addition, free boat trips will alos be offered from Bang Wa Pier to piers along the Chao Phraya River: Wat Intharam, Saphan Phut, Rachinee, and Tha Chang; starting from 6am to 9am (every 30 minutes) and from 9am to 7pm (every hour).Facebook.
