Pak Khat (Thai: ปากคาด; IPA: [pàːk kʰâːt]) is a district (Amphoe) in the eastern part of Bueng Kan Province, northeastern Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the east clockwise) Bueng Kan and So Phisai of Bueng Kan Province, and Rattanawapi of Nong Khai Province. To the northwest across the Mekong river is the Laotian province Bolikhamxai.

History[edit]

The minor district (King Amphoe) was established on October 1, 1978, when it was split off from Phon Phisai district.[1] It was upgraded on March 20, 1986.[2]
