Named the Venice of the east in the past. Used for transportation and sewage disposal, most of the Bangkok klongs have been filled. The popular Klong Saen Saeb crosses central Bangkok from east to west, 18 km long. Dirty, smell, but convenient, fast, and cheap used by more than 60,000 locals people/day. Deserve major areas, Pratunam, Nana Sukhumvit, Asok, Thonglor, Ekamai, Siam, Jim Thompson House, Bo Bae market, Wat Saket, but also some which are more difficult to access such as Ramkhamhaeng and Bangkapi. Old wooden houses, homes that have not changed in decades. Graffiti brings a bit of color.
A must experience.
