Ang Thong, originally known as Mueang Wiset Chai Chan, is located along the Noi River and the low-lying banks of the Chao Phraya River. Historically, Ang Thong was an essential frontier outpost of the Ayutthaya Kingdom in defense against the Burmese.
Ang Thong province is a center for the production of numerous handicrafts, including miniature dolls, firebricks, drums, and wickerwork. It is also the site of origin of Li Ke folk dancing and many native folk songs, as well as the hometown of Nai Dok and Nai Thongkaeo, heroes of the legendary Bang Rachan Battle against the Burmese. Ang Thong also features more than 200 magnificent and interesting temples.
Ang Thong is a small province through which the Chao Phraya and Noi Rivers flow. Ang Thong is mostly flat, containing neither mountains nor forests, and consists primarily of agricultural land.

Ang Thong is only 108 kilometers from Bangkok and is an area of historical importance for its contributions to Thai art and mythology.
