NONTHABURI
 
Nonthaburi is a second smellest province of the Central. It is one of 5 perimeter cities of Bangkok, others are Samut Prakan, Nakhon Pathom, Samut Sakhon, and Pathum Thani. It is conveniently accessed by both roads and cruising through the Chao Phraya River, which is half-cutting the province.
 
In the history, the province was found as a part of Ayutthaya Kingdom. It was firstly at the Talat Khwan, famous village of orchards. In the year 1636, King Prasat Thong commanded a canal dug as a short cut from Ban Talat Khwan to the mouth of Bang Kruai Canal. In the year 1665 King Narai the Great gave a royal command to build a fortress at the mouth of Khlong Mae Nam Om and the township area was moved over there too.

The fortress was demolished during the reign of King Rama III to reuse the bricks for the construction of Wat Chalerm Phra Kiat. In the year 1928 King Phra Pok Klao gave a royal command to relocate the township area to the present site. Nonthaburi was once consolidated with Krung Thep on January 1, 1943; however, it was reestablished as an independent province again on May 9, 1946
