Thailand Mail

The history of the Thailand mail starts in 1880, with a letter sent by Chao Muen Samuhjairaj to king Rama V in which he asked him to open a post office in Thailand.

The king said yes to the idea and proposed His Royal Highness Somdetch Phra Chao Nong Ya Tho Chao Fa Bhanurangsi Swangwong Krom Luang Bhanuphandhuwong Wordej to be the Post Departament’s director-general.

His Highness had experience in the Khow Ratchakarn’s distribution, a newspaper whose title means ‘public service news’.


The opening of the post office was well prepared and planned; His Royal Highness Bhanurangsi Swangwong inaugurated the postal services on August the 4 th , 1883, by accepting books and letters in Thonburi and Phranakorn.
