RIVERS
River Map
 
The two principal river systems of Thailand are the Chao Phraya and the Mekong. Together, these rivers support the irrigation for Thailand's agricultural economy. In addition to these two large systems, there are a number of other river systems and individual rivers which drain the lands within Thailand's borders into the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea. The Mekong is the only river system in Thailand which drains into the South China Sea.
 
Chao Phraya River System
The Chao Phraya River System is the main river system of Thailand, as its basin defines much of the region of central Thailand. The Chao Phraya River begins at the confluence of the Ping and Nan river at Nakhon Sawan

It then flows from north to south for 372 kilometres from the central plains through Bangkok to the Gulf of Thailand.
 
Mekong River System
The Mekong River, one of the world’s major rivers, drains into the South China Sea. It is the 11th-longest river in the world, and the 12th-largest by volume.

Its estimated length is 4,880 kilometres. From the Tibetan Plateau it runs through China's Yunnan province, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.

The rivers of Thailand play an important role in the lives of the Thai people. The river systems provide irrigation, potable water, cheap transportation, electricity, and the livelihoods for a large number of people all over the country. This easily explains why nearly all the major cities of Thailand are located by the banks of rivers. The rivers also have an important role in Buddhist mythology and are considered holy by all Buddhist.
