The city is spread over 1,600 square kilometres and stands at an elevation of 4.9 feet above sea level. It is located on the low flat plain of Chao Praya River, which extends 372 km and stretches to the Gulf of Thailand. The course of the river through Bangkok has been altered by the creation of shortcut canals, giving Bangkok the name ‘Venice of the East’. The city has several parks, some small and small large. Bangkok has extremely soft soil known as Bangkok clay and this along with the low elevation and an inadequate drainage system make the region prone to flooding.
