Bangkok's red-light district is ready to be renovated – in the style of the Cotswolds.
Rattanakosin Island in the center of the Thai capital has been a prostitute for decades.
Street girls play local men there and leave tourist hotspots behind flashy gogo dancers in search of rich foreigners.
But Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-Cha has stated that his days are counted after being inspired by the little Venice Bourton-on-the-Water, near Cheltenham, in the Cotswolds.

The small village became & # 39; on the water & # 39; when the Rindrush River, which runs around it, was diverted to the village to power a number of mills
The & # 39; dream & # 39; of military leaders to see the area around 1700, with canals through it, transformed into a & # 39; major tourist attraction reminiscent of the English Cotswolds & # 39 ;, reports the Bangkok Post.
Yellow star-shaped flowers are planted along the canals, while old buildings get a soft yellow tint.
Defense Ministry Permanent Secretary Gen. Nat. Intarachareon added that they are now planning to recreate the area in the & # 39; image of the Cotswolds & # 39 ;.
From February, channels were dredged and floating water cleaners installed.
Bangkok Metropolitan Administrative assistant Phaitoon Khamparat said the second part of the plan is to re-adjust this area and landscape to make it unsuitable for prostitution.

Door By cleaning the area with more electric lights, we can add CCTV to check the offenders.
& # 39; Third, new public activities must be introduced in the area to boost tourism. & # 39;
It is unclear whether prostitutes, street food vendors and scrap traders who have been living there for years may stay in the area in the future.

There are an estimated 1,682 canals in the city, giving it the name & # 39; Venice of the East & # 39; have given.
Bourton-on-the-Water literally became & # 39; on the water & # 39; when the course of the nearby River Windrush was changed to go through the village instead of around it.
This was done in the 17th century to power different mills and to keep the small village on the industrial railway wagon.
A brief history of Bourton-on-the-Water
This picturesque village, whose name comes from the Saxon word & # 39; burgh & # 39 ;, meaning fort, was first inhabited around 300 BC.
On the northern edge of the village there are traces of early settlements from the stone and Bronze Age. Burial mounds are also visible throughout the area.
When the Romans arrived, they built the Fosse road through the village, which connected it to London and the West country. They also built a camp in the area because the village was next to the Windrus River, now called Lansdowne.
Later a church was built on the site of a Roman temple. In 708AD this was probably a wooden Saxon church, which was subsequently replaced by a Norman stone in 1110AD.

Bourton was brought in the 17th century, quite literally & # 39; on the water & # 39 ;.
The river was diverted to run through the village instead of around it, so that three mills could be driven. This led to one of the most famous features of the village, the five bridges made of local stone
During the English Civil War, which began in 1642, the area was loyal to the king. His Majesty Charles I is even said to have stopped there in June 1644 en route to Evesham.
A major battle in the civil war, where the frost was defeated, was fought at Stow-on-the-Wold just six kilometers away.
