The Sirimahannop Tall Ship, a new landmark on the Chao Phraya River
was designed to replicate and commemorate the legacy of the legendary “Thoon Kramom” ship, a 475-ton three-mast ship which was the largest vessel in Siam that brought prosperity from across the seas of the west to the Kingdom of Siam. The Thoon Kramom was built in the early trading period between Siam and western countries following King Mongkut (Rama IV)’s pursuit of free trade which subsequently led to the signing of the Bowring Treaty with Great Britain resulting in trade and bilateral ties.
When Siam had to face invasion from western countries, the Thoon Kramom, already docked and ready to operate in the northern part of Phra Chulachomklao Fort, was thus converted into a warship and played a crucial role in defending the Chao Phraya estuary. It later was assigned to the naval apprentice school before being decommissioned. On March 21, 1923, the Thoon Kramom was the last three-masted ship used by the Royal Thai Navy for warfare.
The interior of the Sirimahannop Tall Ship has been decorated with artwork portraying Thai civilization and history, as well as the rich heritage of the first industrial and international trading area in Siam.

The ‘Heritage Alive’ concept is reinvigorating a lifestyle destination for Thais and tourists along the Chao Phraya riverside, reflecting and reviving the preservation of an important historical and economic area. The story of Charoen Krung Road was chosen as it runs along ASIATIQUE The Riverfront and resonates as a significant artery for Bangkok from its earliest days, highlighting the prosperity that was achieved from international trade during the reign of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V). The site where ASIATIQUE now stands was the first and largest international trading port in Siam, making it the gateway to global commerce which played a large role in integrating western and eastern concepts which still connects the past from the reign of Rama V to the present.
