Phra Pradaeng

Phra Pradaeng is a district of Samut Prakan Province in Thailand.GeographyNeighboring districts are Thung Khru, Rat Burana, Yan Nawa, Khlong Toei, Phra Khanong and Bang Na, and the districts Mueang Samut Prakan, and Phra Samut Chedi of Samut Prakan. The district is on a bend of the Chao Phraya River.HistoryPhra Pradeang was the original center of the area south of Bangkok near the mouth of the Chao Phraya River. Originally named "Nakhon Khuan Khan" (นครเขื่อนขันธ์), it was settled by Mon people. In 1815, King Rama II built the Pom Phlaeng Faifa Fort at the river's bend. The fort is now a small park and is accessible to visitors.200px 200px In 1819, the new town Samut Prakan (or Paknam) was established. Due to economic problems in the early-1930s, several administrative entities were abolished, including Phra Phradaeng Province, which had its districts assigned to Samut Prakan and Thonburi effective 1 April 1932.A two kilometre tramway across the neck of the Phra Pradaeng river bend opened in 1908 and closed c. 1940. Operated by a private company, the motorised trams connected with motorboat services to Bangkok and to Paknam at each end of the line. The tram cut a considerable time off the up and downriver journey by avoiding the long river bend.
