Bangkok was built on the banks of the Chao Phraya River in the early 15th century. The river has undergone man-made alterations to facilitate transportation with the last shortcut canal achieved in 1722. The metropolis has developed on this configuration to what it is today around the waterways and low lying areas of the delta.
