Bangkok is both the province with the highest population and the highest population density.
The biggest province by area is Nakhon Ratchasima, the smallest Samut Songkhram. Ranong
has the lowest population number, while Mae Hong Son has the lowest population density
(numbers according to 2000 census).

Each province is administered by a governor, who is appointed by the Ministry of the Interior.
The only exception is Bangkok, whose governor is elected.

The provinces are subdivided into 877 districts (amphoe,. The fifty districts of Bangkok are
called khet , but even in official documents they are sometimes misidentified as amphoe. The
number of districts in the provinces varies, from three in the smallest provinces to the fifty in
Bangkok. Further subdivision levels are tambon (subdistricts) and finally, muban (villages). In
Bangkok the tambon are called khwaeng

List Of Provinces
Thailand is divided into 75 provinces
(Thai: changwat, singular and plural),
which are grouped into 5 groups of
provinces - sometimes the East and
Central are grouped together. The
capital Bangkok, though not a province
but a special administrative area, is
usually also included as a 76th province
as it is at the same administrative level
as the other provinces. The name of the
province is the same as that of the
capital city, which is sometimes
preceded with a Mueang to avoid
confusion with the province. With the
exception of Songkhla, Chon Buri and
Prachuap Khiri Khan, the capital is also
the biggest city in the province.
