In the opinion of archeological studies the South East Asian countries were inhibited for more than 4000 years B.C. very close to Bronze Age. Most of the descendents / modern comprising of different communities are from them and the rest from nearby country like China. Agricultural and other cultural heritage have been transmitted gradually. Later Malay, Mon and Khmer civilizations flourished in the region prior to the arrival of ethnic Tai.
The Thai dates the founding of their nation to the 13th century in 1238 throwing over their Khmer overlords at Sukhothai and established a Thai kingdom. A new Thai kingdom that emerged in 1350 on the Chao Praya River at Ayuthkaya and ruled over 400 years. Though there was a difference between the Hindu Kingdom nearby Angkor and the Thai, the Thai rulers gradually took up Buddhism and was adopted as religion. Bangkok, the new city and present capital Hourished with its immense affluence on the Chao Praya River.
