A Study of Attitudes of Bangkok’s Dwellers Toward the Chao Phraya Riverfront
Keywords:Attitudes of dwellers, Bangkok, The Chao Phraya River, Riverfront development, Personal preferences toward the river
Water is an important natural resource necessary to all livings. Recent studies mark that spending time in nature can foster mental and physical health, which can result in increased levels of social support, social cohesion, and a sense of community, allowing cities to grow healthily. Historically, the Chao Phraya River has had a strong connection with the city of Bangkok – the capital of Thailand. Its riverfront is a paradigmatic example of a unique urban blue space. However, city expansion and rapid industrialization have substantially interrupted the engagement between Bangkok’s dwellers and the river. Satisfaction of Bangkok’s dwellers over the Chao Phraya’s riverfront use has been dampened. By conducting a survey within the constructively selected study area, the study brings a comprehensive view on attitudes toward overall development along the Chao Phraya River.
