KAMPHAENG PHET

Kamphaeng Phet is a location of an ancient city that existed

in Thai history at least 700 years ago. As an important

strategic outpost of the Sukhothai Kingdom, the city was

strongly fortified with walls and battlements, which still

remain to be seen. According to historical evidence, two

towns known as Chakangrao and Nakhon Chum had existed

on the left and right banks, respectively, of the Ping River

before the emergence of Kamphaeng Phet. The latter is

located opposite the old Kamphaeng Phet town, and

therefore, is of historical as well as cultural importance.

Kamphaeng Phet Historical Park was proclaimed a World

Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1991. The province also offers

several natural attractions with verdant forests abundant

with flora, fauna, and various kinds of birds, such as Mae

Wong National Park, Khlong Lan National Park, and Khlong

Wang Chao National Park.

Situated in the Lower North of Thailand, Kamphaeng Phet

boasts the topography of plains in the north and south, with

undulating mountains in the west, which are the origin of

the province’s streams and tributaries. Among these are

Khlong Suan Mak, Khlong Wang Chao, Khlong Khlung, and

Khlong Khayaeng, all flowing into the Ping River, the

province’s life vein that meanders from north to south across

the province.
