Samut Prakan Province is situated only twenty-five kilometres from Bangkok, just north of the Gulf of Thailand. The old section of the district is still called Pak Nam, which means river mouth. Samut Prakan Province covers 1,004 square kilometres of seasonally flooded plains, crisscrossed by canals. Samut Prakan is not a popular tourist destination in itself and therefore there are few guesthouses or hotels; however, because of its proximity to Bangkok many visitors make day trips from the capital to see the attractions in Samut Prakan, including the Ancient City, the Erawan Museum, and the Crocodile Farm. As Samut Prakan has many expatriate foreigners, English is commonly spoken and there are shops and restaurants that cater to foreign residents and visitors.
