Traditionally, the Siamese way of life was inextricably linked to the river. The waterway was used for transportation and general day-to-day living. The Chinese community, known as Kuti Chine, lived along Chaophaya River opposite the grand palace. The river was home to not just the Kuti Chine however, but also local Thais, other foreigners and Indian traders and was one of the most cosmopolitan places in the entire country.
