Reaching Kadeejeen by Boat
Bukkhalo, Thon Buri, Bangkok 10600, Thailand
Reaching Kadeejeen by BoatKadeejeen is on the Thonburi side of the Chao Phraya River, in a region that served as the official base of power for the Ayutthaya kingdom (1351-1767 AD). In the late 1700s, however, King Rama I ordered the capital be moved to the opposite side of the river to protect his kingdom from Burmese invaders in the west. The Grand Palace and a series of temples such as Wat Po were constructed on the eastern banks of the Chao Phraya, and Kadeejeen gradually became isolated from further development.
