Din Daeng (Thai: ดินแดง; IPA: [dīn dɛ̄ːŋ]) is one of the 50 districts (Khet) of Bangkok, Thailand. Its neighbor, clockwise from north, are Chatuchak, Huai Khwang, Ratchathewi and Phaya Thai.

History[edit]

The district was created in 1993, when the eastern part of Phaya Thai was split off to form a new district.

The district is highly populated partly due to the concentration of apartments built for people by National Housing Authority. They are located along Din Daeng Road and Pracha Songkhro Road.

Administration[edit]

The district is sub-divided into one sub-district (Khwaeng).
