Sukhumvit - Canal Saen Saep


fastrack index links below image


Khlong Saen Saep (Thai: คลองแสนแสบ, is a canal (khlong) in central Thailand, connecting the Chao Phraya River to Prachin Buri and Chachoengsao. A portion of the canal is used for public transport by an express boat service in Bangkok. The canal is lined with concrete walkways on either side in many areas where people stroll. In other areas the heavily polluted water oozes into adjacent properties, especially after heavy rainstorms. The canal is connected to many other canals in a large network, though most of the other canals do not have a regular transport service.

On the Thonburi side of the river (the old city), a network of canals (khlongs), largely unaffected by modern development still connect the city to the suburbs and on the Rattanakosin side it is possible to catch a river taxis along Khlong Saen Saep, a dirty but important transport artery that cuts through the heart of the modern city.  

western end Connects to Chao Phraya to East end Prachinburi Province and Chachoengsao. 
A portion of the canal is used for public transport by an express boat service in Bangkok.
