Travel Information - Phang Nga Province

Phang-nga, a seaside province by the Andaman Sea with scenic views of forests and islands. The province offers superb natural beauty both onshore and underwater.

The Meaning of “Phang-nga”

The name “Phang-nga” is supposed to have come from “Muang Phu-nga”, named after Nga mountain (or Phang-nga Mountain), which is situated in Phang-nga Town.

“Muang Phu-nga” was under the administration of the government in Nakhorn Sri Thammarat. During the region of Rama II, the name “Phu-nga” was found in records of government officials in Nakhorn Sri Thamarat, showing that “Phu-nga” must have been a town under the left Surasawadee Department. It is also thought that “Phu-nga” was named so in order to rhyme with “Phuket”

The change in pronunciation of “Phu-nga” to “Phang-nga” is thought to have resulted from the confusion of foreign tin buyers with the way it written and the way it was pronounced. The foreign tin buyers spelled it “Phunga” which could be read as “Phu-nga”, “Phang-nga”, or “Phang-ga”

Many thanks to TOURISM AUTHORITY OF THAILAND, Southern Office: Region 4, for providing us information about Phuket and surrounding area.
