Huai Thap Than (Thai: ห้วยทับทัน) is a district (Amphoe) in the western part of Sisaket Province, northeastern Thailand.


Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Mueang Chan, Uthumphon Phisai and Prang Ku of Sisaket Province, and Samrong Thap of Surin Province.


The minor district (King Amphoe) Haui Thap Than was established on January 17, 1977, when the four tambon Huai Thap Than, Mueang Luang, Phak Mai and Kluai Kwang were split off from Uthumphon Phisai district.[1] It started operation on February 16 with a temporary district office within the temple (Wat) Phra Charangsan, which was replaced by a permanent office building in 1981. It was upgraded to a full district on March 20, 1986.[2]


The district is subdivided into 6 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 80 villages (muban). Huai Thap Than is a township (thesaban tambon) which covers parts of tambon Huai Thap Than. There are further 6 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
