A Miserable Slum by the Dirty Canal
Despite the residents' poor housing condition, they have access to electricity and water, which somewhat lessens their hardship. Thais are not the only community living in the slums. One can find a community of foreign migrant workers and refugees.
A city settlement of the marginalized and the poor.

Many landlords have resorted to arson, an effective way of eviction, which violate the rights of people but something that landlords do not care.
