Bang Bon (Thai: บางบอน; IPA: [bāːŋ bɔ̄ːn]) is one of the 50 districts (Khet) of Bangkok, Thailand. Its neighbors, clockwise from north, are Bang Khae, Phasi Charoen, Chom Thong, and Bang Khun Thian districts of Bangkok, Amphoe Mueang and Amphoe Krathum Baen of Samut Sakhon Province, and Nong Khaem of Bangkok.
Formerly Bang Bon was a tambon of amphoe Bang Khun Thian in Thon Buri province, prior to the joining of Thon Buri and Phra Nakhon into a single province, after which it was a sub-district of Bang Khun Thian district.
On October 14, 1997, Bang Bon was split from Bang Khun Thian and established as a new district, and the district office opened on March 6, 1998. Its district office was the last office of Bangkok's 50 districts to open, first established temporarily at the Thepyada Arak Fresh Market building, but later moved to a permanent location at 1 Soi Ekachai 135/1 (Suea To) on Ekachai Road.
The district is sub-divided into 1 sub-district (Khwaeng).
