Boats used to be the primary mode of transport for Thai kings, and the National Museum of Royal Barges in Bangkok exhibits traditional Thai barges with intricate designs of Hindu and Buddhist icons. The museum displays information about the customs and history of the royal barges, costumes worn by the crew, and even serves as a dry dock for the boats.
The Royal Barges National Museum, located in the Thonburi region of Bangkok, is a building displaying an astounding collection of Thai barges and boats. The boats had been the only means of ancient communication plying on the extensive Khlong (the local term for canals) as well as along the Chao Phraya River.
