About This Project

In Southeast Asia short distances are usually travelled by water taxi, especially in Thailand. Locals call these boats “Ruea Hang Yao”. They do not use oars so the direction of travel is controlled entirely by the long propeller shaft. This enables the water taxis to navigate in very shallow waters.
 
Aside from transporting people, these vessels also haul goods and take part in boat races.
 
It is due to this versatility that these boats have become a fundamental component of logistical planning in coastal areas and cities that have a canal system – Like Bangkok
