Samut Songkhram is the province of fertile land, of plants
and food grains, the production source of vegetables and fruits, as well as a
vast variety of seafood products. It is also an interesting historical source
for the early Rattanakosin period.
Samut Songkhram is an ancient province with a long history. Originally, it is
believed that this province was once a part of Ratchaburi province, and called
Suan Nork at that time. Then, towards the end of the Ayutthaya period going on
to the Thonburi period, it was separated from Ratchaburi province and was called
Mueang Mae Klong.
Samut Songkhram is located 72 Kilometres from Bangkok, occupies an area of
416 square kilometres and is administratively divided into 3 districts: Amphoe
Muang, Amphoe Amphawa, and Amphoe Bang Khonthi.
