Visit the page on Tourist Attractions in Samut Prakan for more information.
Samut Prakan Province (จังหวัดสมุทรปราการ) 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”.
Samut Prakan is divided into six districts (Amphoe). The districts are further subdivided into 50 sub-districts (tambon) and 405 villages (moo-ban). These six districts are: Amphoe Mueang, Amphoe Bang Bo, Amphoe Bang Phli, Amphoe Phra Pradaeng, Amphoe Phra Samut Chedi and Amphoe Bang Sao Thong.
