Krasae Sin (Thai: กระแสสินธุ์, pronounced [krā.sɛ̌ː sǐn]) is a district (amphoe) in the northern part of Songkhla Province, southern Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the south clockwise) Sathing Phra of Songkhla Province, Pak Phayun, Bang Kaeo, Khao Chaison, Mueang Phatthalung of Phatthalung Province and Ranot of Songkhla Province.

The western part of the district is on the shore of the Thale Luang and Thale Noi, the northern parts of the Songkhla Lake.

History[edit]

The minor district (king amphoe) was created on 16 February 1978, when the three tambon Choeng Sae, Ko Yai, and Rong were split off from Ranot District.[1] It was upgraded to a full district on 4 July 1994.[2]

Administration[edit]

The district is divided into four sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 22 villages (muban). There are no municipal (thesaban) areas within the district, and a further four tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
