Commuting By Canal In Bangkok

Published

on

These passengers make a perilous commute every day – leaping onto an express boat that pulls up to the side of a canal piet taking locals around the city in Bangkok.

This form of transport is cheap at just 10 baht a ride sometimes covering several miles.

But it also carries plenty of risks. To board the boat, passengers have to crowd around and step from the dock across a gap and then duck below the boat’s awning.

Footage from the Pratunam Pier shows how women carrying shopping bags and men with briefcases leap onto the vessel – sometimes while it’s still moving.

Although canal boats are popular, there are regular accidents from people tripping when they get on and off the boat. In December last year, brave onlookers had to jump into the water and haul a woman to safety after she fell while stepping off a boat – only avoiding being crushed because locals pushed the boat back.
