The Chao Phraya river in Bangkok is a representation of Thailand art, customs and culture. On the either side of the river are global major hotel chains buzzing with business. The flower market, the Asiatic, the dining options, the cruise entertainments, and now the water dance – the Chao Phraya riverfront is a global MICE attraction.
“The ICONIC Multimedia Water Feature is another of the great attractions we promised to place on the ICONSIAM site as part of our civic duty to create shared value by driving global interest in Bangkok and Thailand. We hope it will do for Bangkok what the London Eye does for London and the Botanic Garden at the Marina Bay Sands does for Singapore, bringing benefits not only at the national level but also to the multitude of riverside communities along this stretch of the river,” she said.Mrs. Chadatip Chutrakul, Director of ICONSIAM Co., Ltd.
The technology activated by GHESA uses high-speed water jets with compressed air tech combined with 2D, 3D and 4D jets that can spin and spiral to different heights upto 35 meters, and the music and lights make it a visual treat for the eyes. The cybernetic technology shoots the fountain jets in 0.1 second, and several floral images are displayed in split seconds. Flowers too are an integral part of the Thai life and community and Thai traditions.
