Amnat Charoen  is one of the north-eastern provinces ( Changwat ) of Thailand. Neighbouring provinces are ( clockwise from the south ) Ubon Ratchathani, Yasothon and Mukdahan. To the east it borders Salavan of Laos.


The province is located in the Mekong valley. A long footpath along some of the river allows people to enjoy the view. In dry season, from February to May, water in Mekong River descends, and allows islands to appear. Such famous islands include Kaeng Tanglang at Si Sombun Village, close to Amphoe Chanuman, and Kaeng Hin Khan at Ban Hin Khan, 30 kilometres south of Amphoe Chanuman. The other two rivers in the province are the Lam Sae Bok and Lam Sae Bai.


Amnat Charoen gained city status during the reign of King Rama III. It was first administered from Nakhon Khemarat, and later from Ubon Ratchathani. It became a province in its own right on January 12, 1993, when it was split off from Ubon Ratchathani. It is thus one of the three youngest provinces of Thailand, together with Nong Bua Lam Phu and Sa Kaeo.


In the middle of the provincial seal is an image of the Buddha called Phra Mongkol Ming Muang. Also known as Phra Yai (Big Buddha), this 20 mtr. high statue is the most sacred one in the city of Amnat Charoen.


The provincial tree is Hopea ferrea.


The provincial slogan is Phra Mongkhon, Seven River basils, Sacred caves, Phra Lao, Beautiful islands and mountain, precious silk and religious people.


The province is sub divided into seven districts ( Amphoe ). The districts are further sub divided into 56 communes ( Tambon ) and 653 villages ( Muban ).
