Nong Suea (Thai: หนองเสือ; IPA: [nɔ̌ːŋ sɯ̌a]) is a district (Amphoe) in the eastern part of Pathum Thani Province, central Thailand.

In the district area there is a pond, which in the past was visited by wild tigers from the mountains of neighboring Saraburi and Nakhon Nayok to drink water. So the people in the district named the pond Nong Suea.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Wang Noi of Ayutthaya Province, Nong Khae and Wihan Daeng of Saraburi Province, Ban Na and Ongkharak of Nakhon Nayok Province, and Thanyaburi and Khlong Luang of Pathum Thani Province.

Administration[edit]

The district is subdivided into 7 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 70 villages (muban). Nong Suea itself has township status (thesaban tambon) and covers part of the tambon Nong Suea. There are 7 Tambon Administrative Organizations (TAO).
