Nong Ki (Thai: หนองกี่, pronounced [nɔ̌ːŋ kìː]) is the westernmost district (amphoe) of Buriram Province, northeastern Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the northeast clockwise) Nong Hong, Chamni, Nang Rong, Non Suwan of Buriram Province, Soeng Sang, Khon Buri, and Nong Bun Mak of Nakhon Ratchasima Province.

History[edit]

The minor district (king amphoe) was created on 1 March 1974, when the three tambon Nong Ki, Yoei Prasat, and Mueang Phai were split off from Nang Rong District.[1] It was upgraded to a full district on 12 April 1977.[2]

Administration[edit]

The district is divided into 10 sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 123 villages (muban). Nong Ki is a township (thesaban tambon) which covers parts of tambon Nong Ki, Thung Kratat Phatthana, and Thung Kraten. There are also 10 tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
