Originally a coastal city, silting moved the coastline away from the city. The city has a much larger north to south extension than west to east, which dates back to its original location on a flood-save dune. The modern city centre on the train station is north of Old Town. As of 2005, the city had a population of 105,417. The town lies 783 km south of Bangkok.EtymologyThai honorific Sri or Si is from Sanskrit Sri;, from Dharma;, from Raja.
