Bangkok Melayu are descendants ofMalays who were taken prisoners and forcibly brought to Bangkok by the invading Thai forces during several raids into Pattani and Kedah between 1786 to 1838, Hall (1968) and Jitmoud (1988). They were settled in small communities and distributed to several parts of Bangkok and surrounding areas, Jitmoud (1988). Until 1930' s, with the wave of Thai nationalism followed with implementation on the policy of forced integration, Sanitwong Na Ayuthaya (1988), the rural Bangkok Malays lived apart from the mainstream Thai society practicing Malay culture.
