Pho Si Suwan (Thai: โพธิ์ศรีสุวรรณ) is a district (Amphoe) in the northwestern part of Sisaket Province, northeastern Thailand.

History[edit]

The minor district (King Amphoe) was established on April 30, 1994, when it was split off from Uthumphon Phisai 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]

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Bueng Bun, Uthumphon Phisai and Mueang Chan of Sisaket Province, and Rattanaburi of Surin Province.

Administration[edit]

The district is subdivided into 5 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 80 villages (muban). There are no municipal (thesaban) areas, and 5 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
