ANG THONG
 
Ang Thong is a small province at a low basin of Chao Phraya River. This land of sandy soil has no mountain or forest. Anyway, Noi River is a beautiful attraction.
 
In the past, the center of town was on the bank of Noi River. The city was called "Wiset Chai Chan", an important borderland of Ayuthaya Kingdom.

Once, Burmese used this area as a base to destroy Ayuthaya. It led to the war named "Bang Rajan" at Singburi.

Thonburi Period, the city was later moved to left side of Chao Phraya River and the name was changed to "Ang Thong". It means “A basin of treasure trove”.
