In Burma, both the ethnic Burmans and the Mons claim that Suwannaphum was a kingdom located on the Tenasserim coastal area centered on Thaton.
This belief may stem from a reference in the fourth century Sri Lankan history Dîpavamsa which recounts the story of the Ashoka missionaries (seven centuries removed), stating "Sona and Uttara were dispatched to Suvarnabhumi" and identifies this land with the contemporary (forth century) area of Râmaññadesa or Thaton.

Due to the Chinese writing system, however, the interpretation of the Chinese historical sources are based on supposed correspondences between ideograms and their possible phonetic equivalents with known toponyms in the ancient Southeast Asian civilizations.
