Welcome to Amnat Charoen
Introduction
Amnat Charoen's Tree
Hopea ferrea Laness
Amnat Charoen is part of the lower Northeast region and its eastern boundary is formed by the Mekong River where it shares a border with neighboring Laos. Most people in Amphoe Chanuman are descendant of the Phu Thai ethnic group that migrated from Lao.

Amnat Charoen, located along the Mekong River in Northeastern Thailand, is an area of great natural beauty, featuring a reservoir, the Mekong River, and unspoiled forests and mountains. Amidst this setting are many old temples with exquisite Buddha images and a number of villages engaged in handicrafts production, including silk, for which the province is renowned.
History
Amnat Charoen was first established during the reign of King Rama III of Ratanakosin (Bangkok) some two centuries ago and was once a part of Ubon Ratchathani until it was upgraded to a province in 1993. Although it is a small and tranquil town, Amnat Charoen has various attractions and visitors can stroll around and see picturesque rice paddies and fruit orchards, the rocky rapids of Mekong River, and the production of various quality handicrafts.

Further, Amnat Charoen is known as the Land of Dharma and it features a number of beautiful, old temples with exquisite sacred Buddha images set within peaceful, natural environments. Amnat Charoen is particularly well known for its silk products. The villages most famous for silk production include Baan Chan Lan, Baan Soi, Baan Pueai, Baan Hua Dong, and Baan Nam Thuam.
