Amnat Charoen

Amnat Charoen

Amnat Charoen, situated in the Northeast of Thailand, covers an area of approximately 3,161 square kilometres. The town was established in the reign of King Rama III of the Rattanakosin period. First, it was attached to Khemmarat city but later to Ubon Ratchathani province, from which it was separated and announced as the 75th province of the country on 1 December, 1993. In spite of being a small quiet town, Amnat Charoen features wonderful attractions including beautiful temples and nature as well as handicrafts by the local people. With one side adjacent to the Mekong River as a 38-kilometre-long border with the Lao People’s Democratic Republic in Amphoe Chanuman, the province consists of seven districts; namely, Amphoe Mueang Amnat Charoen, Amphoe Senangkhanikhom, Amphoe Chanuman, Amphoe Pathum Ratchawongsa, Amphoe Phana, Amphoe Lue Amnat and Amphoe Hua Taphan.
