PHICHIT

Phichit is situated in the lower Northern Region of Thailand.

The name “Phichit” means “The Beautiful Town”. It was

probably founded by Phraya Khot Thabong in 1056. During

the Sukhothai period (1238-1350), the community was

named “Sa Luang” which was one of the important town of

Sukhothai. Phichit was named again in Ayutthaya period

(1350-1767) as “Okhaburi” (Town in the Swamp) and it was

the place where King Sanphet VIII or “Phrachao Sua” of

Ayutthaya was born. Phichit was designated as a province

during Rattanakosin period, in the reign of King Rama V

(1868-1910). The Thai famous legend “Kraithong”, the love

story was also originated in Phichit. It was so impressive that

the story has been well-known through out the country so

the province itself is also known as “the Land of the Legend”.

Covering an area of 4,531,013 square kilometres, Phichit

consists of a topography of a basin in the central part and a

gradual high plain on the east side. The province’s main

occupation is agriculture, followed by the wholesale, retail

and service industries. The major produce is corn, mung
