Map of Tambon

The district is subdivided into 7 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 67 villages (muban). There are two subdistrict municipalities (thesaban tambon) - Khlong Thom Tai and Khlong Phon, each covering parts of the same-named tambon. Each tambon has a Tambon administrative organization (TAO), responsible for the area not belonging to any of the municipalities.
