PATHUM THANI, 12 June 2015 – Klongsam district, Pathum Thani province has initiated a roadside landscaping project, in honor of HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.

Dr. Veerasak Hadda, chief of Klongsam district office, explained that the local administration grew 20 breeds of lotus along 16-kilometers of road parallel the Klongsam canal.
