Ko Yuan, Nakhon Sawan

Our team was invited to help the municipality to study and propose future public space development on Ko Yuan, a small island with a small settlement at the beginning of Thailand’s most important river—the Chao Phraya River.

To appreciate this seem-to-be-forgotten area, we visited the place and recorded its beauty and significant location.

The southern tip of the island is the perfect view to see the sunset beyond the landmark Dechatiwong Bridge.

The field of blossoming sun hemp creates seasonal beauty and refresh atmosphere for the local. The Red Indian teepee is a part of a festival that will occur in the following weekend.

Down from the steep riverbank, it is a common sight to see locals spending their quiet time fishing in the water.

A part of cultural landscape/riverscape here—old industrial establishment left abandoned and boat transportation with the long-tailed motorboat.

Life on the river—actually there are a few of this kind of boathouse where locals utilize the river while maintain their friendliness to environment.
