Pathum Thani Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 8 photos

The place where my work place situated.

I used to worked in one University where situated in Pathum Thani . Everyday ,I crossed from Bangkok to Pathum Thani ,it seemed like a short trip but I always enjoyed the scenery of this province. My previous university's location surrounded with big rice field and near the main canal. Sometimes,it was a foggy around which is so wonderful time.

Originally,this city called Sam Khok means 3 small hills since Ayutthaya period and was one important city at that time.In the reign of King Narai of Ayutthaya Kingdom,there was Mon people migrated from Mothama in Burma around 2202 B.E.The King gave some area for their settlement especially Sam Khok District. In 2317 B.E. in King Taksin reign,there was another group of Mon came to settled in this area,called old Mon.In Rattanakosin period,King Rama II,a new Mon group migrated to Thailand again.The King offered them to settled to many areas included Sam Khok. In 2358 B.E. King Rama II visited this city for a merit making,local people offered him many Lotus flowers which made the king rename the city to Pathum Thani meaning The City of Lotus.

Almost of interesting places in Pathum Thani 're temple but there 're also some museums like the Golden Jubilee Museum of Agriculture,Science Museum,Memorial Monument Museum and the Supreme Artists Hall. Besides,this city called the city of universities, cause of many universities located here.Apart from buildings,Pathum Thani still have a rice field and be as the main agriculture area of Thailand.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:River,canal and rice field.
  • Cons:Factory area beside BKK
  • In a nutshell:It 's a part of my work.

    Just want to ask how do you commute from Bangkok to Pathum Thani when you previously worked there? I am currently residing in Bangkok and may be working in Pathum Thani...Or do you suggest to just find a place there? Thank you.
