Ko Chan (Thai: เกาะจันทร์; IPA: [kɔ̀ʔ tɕān]) is a district (amphoe) in the province Chonburi, Thailand.


The minor district was created on July 1, 1997 by splitting the eastern part off from Phanat Nikhom district.[1]

Following a decision of the Thai government on May 15, 2007, all of the 81 minor districts were to be upgraded to full districts.[2] With the publishing in the Royal Gazette on August 24 the upgrade became official.[3]


Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Plaeng Yao, Sanam Chai Khet and Tha Takiap of Chachoengsao Province and Bo Thong and Phanat Nikhom of Chonburi Province.


The district is subdivided into 2 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 27 villages (muban). Ko Chan and Tha Bunmi are both subdistrict municipalities (thesaban tambon) which each cover parts of the same-named tambon. There are further 2 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
