Along its course this river passes through several cities, including Bangkok, andultimately flows into the Upper Gulf of Thailand. After passing through Bangkok, and before entering the Gulf, the Chao Phraya flows through Samut Prakan Province. A number of large canals connect to the Chao Phraya in this province, an area that houses a wide range of industrial facilities.
