Phra Samut Chedi

Phra Samut Chedi

One of the first sights that greeted foreigners arriving in Thailand 150 years ago was Phra Samut Chedi (พระสมุทรเจดีย์), a brilliant white pagoda on an island in the middle of the river. The locals called it ‘Phra Chedi Klang Nam’, or Pagoda in the river. Over the years the river has silted up even more causing the island to become part of the west bank.

  1. Hi Richard,

    I came across your blogs while searching for drones in Thailand. We are hosting an event at Asiatique in Bangkok from the end of May- beginning of June. We would like to capture aerial birds-eye view of the event and large graphic pieces that will be part of the production.

    Is this something of interest to you and have you done anything similar in the past? What types of output can you provide (photos, videos, etc.).

    Please contact me at and I can discuss further.

    Thank you.
