Water-bus On Khlong Saen Saep

Water-bus on Khlong Saen Saep

A water-bus ran the Saen Saep canal

Shot in the city of Bangkok, Thailand.

There are many canals in Bangkok. This big city is a riverside city. Yet most of them are not used anymore. The ground transportation became a main means of transport for so long. Even though I walked along the canals, it was uncommon to see locals getting out on a boat. I thought the remnants were only seen in some floating markets held in the outskirt of Bangkok. The canal in this photo is one of few exceptions. The Saen Saep canal is still used as a mean of mobility for the locals. Many water-buses were coming and going on the canal frequently.

I was standing on the bridge spanned the canal and watched the water surface. A water-bus appeared at the end of the canal. It was approaching. And it was going under the bridge on which I stood. I could see a conductor standing on its bow. I worried that he would fall in the canal if the boat made a rocking motion.
