Samut Prakan Province is at the far end of the Chao Phraya River, where it empties out into the Gulf of Thailand. The borders to the north and west join the Metropolitan of Bangkok. This web site concentrates mainly on Paknam where we live, but we also have information about tourist attractions and festivals around the province. We are close enough to Bangkok for people to come for a day trip. We don't get many independent foreign tourists so this is actually a good place to experience "Untouched Thailand".

Every province in Thailand has a motto that shows its strengths and history. For Samut Prakan it is: "The Naval Battle Memorial Fort, Holy Phra Chedi Klang Nam, Massiv Crocodile Farm, Exciting Ancient Siam, Phra Pradaeng Songkran Festival, Tasty Dried Salit Fish, Rub Bua Traditional Festival and Emerging Industrial Estate. The Province Flower is marigold and the Province Tree is Portia Tree. The Samut Prakan emblem shows the Phra Samut Chedi pagoda and ubosot".

HIGH TIDE FLOODS (??????????????????) - In Samut Prakan, sometimes we get the feeling that we are gradually sinking into the sea. We quite often get deep floods even on days when there hasn't been any rain.

TEMPLE IN THE SEA (???????????) - Due to rising sea levels and land erosion, a village called Khun Samut Chin has had to move their houses a dozen times. Now their temple is surrounded by the sea at high tide.
