Bangkok (People’s Daily) – The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) won a UN-Habitat award for its Klong Ong Ang renovation project, the Thai capital’s latest walking street launched in November 2020.

Bangkok Governor General Aswin Kwanmuang announced on his personal Facebook page that the Klong Ong Ang renovation project was awarded the 2020 Asian Townscape Awards from UN-Habitat Fukuoka, making Thailand one of six countries chosen for the landscape improvement project.

Aswin also invited everyone to visit the Klong Ong Ang Walking Street, which takes place every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Aside food and goods, the walking street features charming street art along both sides of the canal, from Damrong Sathit Bridge to Saphan Han Bridge, plus live music, other performances and kayaking activities.

Hosted by the UN-Habitat Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, in cooperation with the Fukuoka Asian Urban Research Centre, Asian Habitat Society, and Asia Townscape Design Society, the 2020 Asian Townscape Awards are designed to honor cities, regions and projects that have played a significant role as models in landscape construction for the purpose of materializing a living environment that is happy and fulfilling to the people of Asia.
