Khun Han (Thai: ขุนหาญ) is a district (Amphoe) in the southern part of Sisaket Province, northeastern Thailand.

History[edit]

In 1958 the minor district Khun Han (then still spelled ขุนหาร) was upgraded to a full district.[1]

Geography[edit]

The district is bound in the south by the Dangrek Range. Neighboring districts are (from the west clockwise) Phu Sing, Khukhan, Phrai Bueng, Si Rattana, Kantharalak of Sisaket Province and Oddar Meancheay of Cambodia.

Administration[edit]

The district is subdivided into 12 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 145 villages (muban). Khun Han itself is a subdistrict municipality (thesaban tambon) and covers parts of the tambon Si and Non Sung. Further subdistrict municipalities are Si, Krawan, Non Sung, Kanthrom and Pho Krasang, each covering the full same-named subdistrict except those areas belonging to Khun Han municipality. The remaining 7 subdistrict each have a Tambon administrative organization (TAO).
