According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand, in the 1920's, Boat Services ran from Central Bangkok, near Pratunam Market ( water Gate )  to Khlong Suan at weekends courtesy of a certain Nai Loet ( Mr. Loet ). William Warren in his book Bangkok reveals that this was Lert Seresthaputra, a Chinese entrepreneur who owned a trading company and ferry boat service and bought land around Wireless road near the San Saep Canal. Nai Loet is immortalised in Central Bangkok, under a different English spelling, in Nailert Park, Soi Nailert and other well-known places around Wireless Road.

Passenger services still run along Khlong San Saep from Phan Fa ( Phra Sumen Fort ) in central Bangkok way out to Bang Kapi, North East of Bangkok. The passenger boats must have used one of the short canals which link Khlong San Saep with Khlong Prawet Burirom.The origins of this riverside community date back to the reign of King Rama V when boats were the principal transportation and Klong Suan was a stopover for travellers heading to Bangkok.
