A family goes kayaking in Klong Ong Ang in the central Bangkok district of Phra Nakhon. The historical canal has been cleaned and its banks given a facelift to attract visitors.

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has won a UN-Habitat award for its Klong Ong Ang canal renovation project.

UN-Habitat’s regional office and its partners recently hosted the 2020 Asian Townscape Awards (ATA), and Thailand is one of six countries that won awards.

Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang said the canal’s renovation project won the 2020 Asian Townscape Awards of UN-Habitat Fukuoka, which was also given to Japan, South Korea, China, Nepal and Malaysia.

He said those countries served as models for city planners enriching people’s lives while conserving the environment.

Khlong Ong Ang Canal in Bangkok’s Phra Nakhon district has won the 2020 Asian Townscape Award for Landscape Improvement Project.

Bangkok Governor Pol General Aswin Kwanmuang posted a photo of the certificate on his Facebook page on Friday. The award organiser, UN-Habitat Fukuoka, has selected Khlong Ong Ang as one of six places in Asia that demonstrated outstanding improvement in landscape, art, culture, safety and quality of life of people in surrounding communities.





Other countries that also won the award were Japan, South Korea, China, Nepal and Malaysia.

“I would like to thank every related agency and the public for helping improve Khlong Ong Ang into a beautiful landmark that deserves this international recognition,” said Aswin.

Khlong Ong Ang walking street, which opens daily, features music performances, street art exhibition and a variety of products and street foods from local retailers. Visitors also can enjoy a kayaking trip in the canal and appreciate the city landscape on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 4pm until 10pm. Admission is free.

After 5 years of beautification, the canal is now filled with clear water, with both sides decorated with lush plants and modern lightings. Many tourists are attracted to the Ong Ang walking street at the weekend. (Xinhua/Zhang Keren)
