The principal tributaries of the Chao Phraya River are the Pa Sak River, the Sakae Krang River, the Nan River ( along with its principal confluent the Yom River ), the Ping River

( with its principal confluent the Wang River ), and the Tha Chin River.  Each of these tributaries ( and the Chao Phraya itself ) is further tributed by additional minor tributaries often referred to as khwae.

All of the tributaries, including the lesser khwae, form an extensive tree-like pattern, with branches flowing through nearly every province in central and northern Thailand. None of the tributaries of the Chao Phraya extend beyond the nation's borders.The Nan and the Yom River flow nearly parallel from Phitsanulok  to Chumsaeng in the north of Nakhon Sawan province. The Wang River enters the Ping River near Sam Ngao district in Tak province.

The Tha Chin River is the major distributary of the Chao Phraya River. The expanse of the Chao Phraya and Tha Chin Rivers and their distributaries, starting at the point at which the distributaries diverge, together with the land amid the triangle formed by the outermost and innermost distributary, form the Chao Phraya Delta. The many distributaries of the Chao Phraya delta are interconnected by canals that serve both for irrigation and for transportation.
