is believed to be one of a well-known and an attractive travelling
sites. Historically, Damnoenssaduak was actually the name of
the canal dug in the reign of King Rama IV by the military men
and the people of Rajburi, Samutsakorn and Samutsongkram Province
directed by Phayasrisuriyawong, the minister of Defence. In
those days without rivers and canals, transportation was almost
motionless; King Rama IV with his great concern over the country's
future economic growth, he finally had the canal dug to connect
the Taachin River in Samutsakorn Province and Maklong River
in Samutsongkram Province together.
Nowadays Damnoensaduak is one of a provincial district of Rajburi
Province. Most people live densely along both sides of the canal
from one end of the canal to another.The majority of this people
are agriculturists. They grow several different kinds of fruit
and vegetable for examples oranges, grapes, papayas, cabbages,
bean, onion and etc. The land in this area is naturally fertile.
Apart from providing transportation, Damnoensaduak Canal also
provides farmers with adequate water for agricultural purposes
for the whole year around.
More than 200 small canals were dug by local peasants to connect
with it to get water to splatter their land. Moreover; these
small canals also become protitiouus ways of taking their agricultural
products to the markets in neighbouring provinces and Bangkok.
