Thailand - October 24th, 2011

This wide-swath ASAR image focuses on Bangkok, the capital and largest urban area city in Thailand. Bangkok is by far the most densely populated city in Thailand with about 9 million people.

The Chao Phraya River basin, the area surrounding Bangkok, and the nearby provinces comprise a series of plains and river deltas that lead into the Bay of Bangkok about 30 km (19 mi) south of the city center. This gave rise to Bangkok’s nickname the “Venice of the East” due to the number of canals and passages that divide the area into separate patches of land.
