Pathum Thani

Pathum Thani

Pathum Thani is a neighbouring province of Bangkok, only 46 km away from the north of the Capital. It was situated in the fertile Chao Phraya River basin with many canals and tangerine orchards, and originally named Sam Khok. In the Ayutthaya era, it was a settlement for Mon ago. In 1815 when King Rama II made a royal visit to the area, the inhabitants offered him large quantities of lotus flowers, giving rise to the present name, as “Pathum” means “lotus” and “Thani” means “city”.
