An extensive network


Thailand
Thailand

Thailand has an extensive network of inland waterways, based on the Chao Phraya River and linking the agricultural heartland of central Thailand to Klong Toey Port in Bangkok. These waterways provided the major mode of transport until just a few decades ago and are still widely used to ship bulky products, such as rice and oil. Ferries on Bangkok’s extensive system of canals (khlongs) serve thousands of commuters every day.

Thailand’s railway system


Thailand’s railway system, established a century ago, consists of 4,071 km (2,530 mi) of track. It links Bangkok to the northern city of Chiang Mai as well as to the country’s western, northeastern, and southern extremities. The country has 57,400 km (35,700 mi) of roads and highways. Major improvements to the road system, begun in the 1970s, have brought all but the most remote communities within relatively easy reach of markets and services.

Airport


In September 2006 the Suvarnabhumi Airport opened in Bangkok to replace the overloaded Don Muang International Airport. The new international airport ranked as one of the largest in Asia. Smaller domestic airports are located throughout the country. Encarta "Thailand" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
