Ra-ngae (Thai: ระแงะ, pronounced [rā.ŋɛ́ʔ]) is a district (amphoe) in Narathiwat Province, southern Thailand.

History[edit]

Mueang Ra-ngae was divided from Pattani in the reign of King Rama I by Vice-King Boworn Maha Surasinghanat. The governor position was Phraya Ra-ngae. The old city office was near Kelantan state. When the first governor escaped from the city, the next governor moved the office to Tambon Tanyong Mat. In 1906 when King Chulalongkorn established Monthon Pattani, Mueang Ra-ngae was one of the satellite cities of the monthon.[citation needed]

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise): Yi-ngo, Mueang Narathiwat, Cho-airong, Su-ngai Padi, Sukhirin, Chanae, Si Sakhon, and Rueso.

Namtok Sipo National Park is in Ra-ngae.[1]

Administration[edit]

The district is divided into seven sub-districts (tambons), which are further subdivided into 60 villages (mubans). Tanyong Mat and Ma Rue Bo Tok both have township (thesaban tambon) status and cover parts of the tambons with the same names.
