The word “khlong” generally refers to a canal in Thailand. Historically, in the capital of Thailand Bangkok, its khlongs arranged in a crisscross pattern is known as the "Oriental Venice".Khlongs for transport and the flow of the market, but also for sewage treatment. Today, most of the khlongs in Bangkok has been filled in, although the Bangkok Thonburi side keeps it a few big khlongs. The best way to know a place is to take part into the local life. And the best way to get a taste of Bangkok’s past is to explore the klongs (canals) on a long-tail boat. In the west of the river, Thonburi, you can see what Bangkok is like the previous skyscrapers and six lane highway. Many people are still living in the canal so there are a lot of see: water and fruit and beverage packaging small traders decorated arranged in a crisscross pattern, traditional teak house, more pleasant tranquil atmosphere, make the whole in contrast to experience across the hustle and bustle of the Chao Phraya Ri
