Wiset Chai Chan is a district in the southwestern part of Ang Thong Province, central Thailand.HistoryWhen King Naresuan the Great defeated the Burmese troops at Don Chedi, he led his troops pass by Tambon Phai Cham Sin. He saw the strategic use of the area with the Noi River as a natural obstacle for the Burmese troops. Thus he established Mueang Wiset Chai Chan there.In Rattanakosin era, the Noi river had become shallow and was no longer convenient for water transportation. The government thus moved the central tambon of the Mueang to Bang Kaeo, on the Chao Phraya river bank and called the new area Ang Thong. At the same time, they downgraded the district to be Phai Cham Sin district. King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) ordered to rename the district back to its historical name Wiset Chai Chan. In 1979 the office district was moved to beside of the Pho Phraya-Tha Rua road in Tambon San Chao Rong Thong.GeographyNeighboring districts are Samko, Pho Thong, Mueang Ang Thong and Pa Mok of Ang Thong Province, Phak Hai of Ayutthaya Province and Mueang Suphanburi and Si Prachan of Suphanburi Province.
