King Taksin the Great
« on: November 19, 2018, 09:41:41 AM »

King Taksin the Great started his journey from Chantaburi more than 200 years ago - up the eastern Gulf coast then up the Chaopraya river to Ayutthaya. Good article IMO

''Waterways were the primary mode of transport in the old days and King Taksin harnessed the water routes to gain a military edge and beat the Burmese that laid siege to Ayutthaya.''
