ICONSIAM’s Multimedia Water Feature spreads over 400 metres in Bangkok, and is expected to become the next great global attraction in the capital. The fountain exhibits a dazzling combination of colours, sound, light and state-of-the-art technology on the banks of the Chao Phraya River.
Chadatip Chutrakul, the director of ICONSIAM, stated, “We hope it (the water feature) 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.”
“The opening of ICONSIAM last year, and the inauguration of this latest water display attraction, has provided an important boost to the appeal of the river and Bangkok,” said the deputy governor for administration of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Somradee Chitchong. “This and other world-class attractions help to draw interest in Bangkok from around the world, helping travel agents promote the city and the river as the next great global destination,” she added.
The new attraction is a creation of GHESA Water & Art, a design firm well known for their fountain projects worldwide. The Multimedia Water Feature can shoot water up to 35 metres high, dance following the rhythm of the music and project images of Thai culture. The fountain exhibits performances free of charge, every day at 6.30 pm, 8 pm and 9 pm at River Park, ICONSIAM.
