Pathum Thani is a neighbouring province of Bangkok. It is situated
on the Chao Phraya basin with plenty of canals and orange plantations.
Its original name is Muang Sam Khok, which was founded during the
Ayutthaya era. It was the settlement for the Mon people migrating
from Mothama (in Myanmar) over 350 years ago. In the year 1815 when
King Rama II made a royal visit to this area, the inhabitants offered
him plenty of lotus flowers which is the origin of the present name.
