Travel Thailand, Samut Sakhon

Changwat Samut Sakhon was formerly called Muang Tha Chin probable due to its dealing with a vast number of Chinese junks in the old days. Later, in the year 1548 during King Phra Maha Chakkraphat reign, he commanded Muang Tha Chin to be used as the center for recruiting troops from various seaside towns. He changed the name from Tha cin to Sakhon Buri.

In the year 1704 King Sua made a royal visit by Ekkachai (the royal barge) through Khok Kham Canal which is very curvy. Phanthai Norasing, the coxswain, could not operate the proper steering thus causing damage to the prow due to hitting the limb of a tree. To forester the steadiness of the palace law, Phanthai Norasing begged the king to slaughter him King Sua then commanded to have a new canal be dug to eliminate the sharp curves of Khok Kham Canal and the mouth of the new canal meets the Tha Chin River in front of Mahachai Town. However, this new canal was completed in the reign of King Thaisa and named Khlong Mahachaithus causing the people to call this town Muang Mahachai. Still later it was renamed Samut Sakhon during the reign of King Rama IV but is till popularly called Mahachai by the villagers.

Samut Sakhon is administratively divided into three Amphoes: Muang Samut Sakhon, Krathum Baen, and Ban Phaeo; it occupies a total area of 872 square kilometers. It is located 28 kilometers from Bangkok along Highway No.35, the Thon Buri-Pak Tho Highway and 38 kilometers along Highway No.4, the Petchakasem Highway through Setthakit Road passing Amphoe Krathum Baen township area before reaching the city site.
