Bueng Sam Phan (Thai: บึงสามพัน, pronounced [bɯ̄ŋ sǎːm pʰān]) is a district (amphoe) in the southern part of Phetchabun Province, northern Thailand.

History[edit]

Tambon Sap Samo Thot was created by separating it from Tambon Ban Phot, Nong Phai district in 1966. On May 15, 1975 tambon Sap Samo Thot together with tambon Sap Mai Daeng, Nong Chaeng und Kan Chu were split from Nong Phai district and created the minor district (King Amphoe) Bueng Sam Phan.[1] It was named Bueng Sam Phan (Sam Phan pond) after the most important water resource of the district.

The minor district was officially upgraded to a full district on March 25, 1979.[2]

Geography[edit]
