Sai Buri (Thai: สายบุรี) is a district (Amphoe) in Pattani Province, southern Thailand.

The local Malay people call it Teluban (Jawi: تلوبن), which is also the name of the only municipal area of the district, or Selindung Bayu (Jawi: سليندوڠ بايو), the Malay and Sanskrit word for "wind shelter".


Neighboring districts are (from the southeast clockwise) Mai Kaen of Pattani Province, Bacho of Narathiwat Province, Kapho, Thung Yang Daeng and Panare of Pattani again. To the east is the Gulf of Thailand.


Saiburi was one of the seven Mueang into which the Pattani sultanate was split. In the thesaphiban administrative reforms at the beginning of the 20th century it became a province within the Monthon Pattani. 1909 the area of the province was reduced by reassigning Yi-Ngo and modern-day Mueang Narathiwat districts to Mueang Bang Nara, now Narathiwat province. In 1932 the province was abolished, the northern half was added to Pattani province and the southern part to Narathiwat.[1]

Originally simply named Mueang, the district was renamed to Taluban in 1917.[2] 1938 the district was renamed to Saiburi.[3]


The district is subdivided into 11 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 64 villages (muban). Taluban is a subdistrict municipality (thesaban tambon), which covers the complete tambon Taluban. Each of the other subdistricts has a Tambon administrative organization (TAO).
