area in the old days as appeared in the Simon de La Loubere’s Journey Archive, French ambassador in King Narai’s reign said “the orchards belt area at  
Bangkok exists continuously along the banks of Chao Phraya upstream for 4 Li (unit of length equivalently half kilometers) to its extremity at Talat Khwan. It
