New provinces soon to be created in the Land of Smiles

Recommended Posts

I remember talk about making Nang Rong (lower Buriram) into a province at least 10 years ago. From what I can remember it was supposedly going to be right along the Kampuchea border from Chong Chom and down into Sakeo province. I don't know if the forum archives go back that far. There was certainly a few threads on it.

I wouldn't worry too much, they already did that to Nong Khai (creating Bueng Kan province) not too long ago. I don't recall any reports of chaos erupting as a result of that split off.

Even if they create a new province and your amphoe happens to be on the other side of the "border", (so to speak), wouldn't that mean a new amphoe on your side, or maybe you will belong to another district in your province?

Lets cross the bridge once we get there ......... six new provincial governors, buildings, titles, assistants and hundreds of extra photocopy machines to keep the endless paper bureaucracy going.

Welcome to the new decade 😉

Exactly, there's been one new province since I came here the first time in 1989.

Amnat Charoen, Nong Bua Lampu and Sa Kaeo, all in 1993 and Bueng Kan in 2011

A few years back there was a story about this. I also remember speaking to some Thai friends in Nang Rong, Buriram about it.

 

The top 3 contenders for new province status at the time were; BunGan (already done), ChumPae (Khon Kaen) and Nang Rong (Buriram).

 

Nang Rong always gets held up because of the argument about Khao Phanom Rung. Under the new plans this will end up in Nang Rong Province. For obvious reasons, Buriram residents are up in arms about this and believe it should remain part of Buriram Province.
