Pak Nam Satun (Thailand)

Characteristics

Description

Pak Nam Satun (or Satul) lies about 10 miles NE of Pulau Langkawi and is well sheltered by the islands from the Southwest Monsoon.

Satun is one of the southern provinces of Thaïland.

The name Satun is a Thai version of its original Malay name: Setul.

Until 1813 Satun was a district of the Malay state of Kedah, then known as Setul Mambang Segara or Mukim Setul n Malay.
After that date it was administered by a governor sent from Nakhon Si Thammarat.
In 1897 Satun became part of Monthon Saiburi (now Kedah), which in 1909 was divided between British Empire and Siam as part of Anglo-Siamese Treaty of 1909.
While most of Kedah was ceded to Britain, Satun was awarded to Siam because it had a relatively large Thai population.
Satun was then incorporated into Monthon Phuket. The monthon system was ended in 1933, and Satun province became a first-level subdivision of Thailand.
