Walking rates of pedestrians in Bangkok, Thailand, are analyzed. Data were collected using a photographic technique with the aid of a video camera on selected walkways such as sidewalks, stairways, and crosswalks. Walking rates on the pedestrian facilities in Bangkok were determined and compared with those of Western standards as well as with findings obtained in other Asian countries. The findings of the study confirmed that Asian pedestrians walk slower compared with their Western counterparts, so local design standards are needed for pedestrian facilities in Asian countries.
