Si Wilai (Thai: ศรีวิไล; IPA: [sǐː wí.lāj]) is a district (Amphoe) in the eastern part of Bueng Kan Province, northeastern Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Mueang Bueng Kan, Seka and Phon Charoen. Phu Thok, the emblematic mountain of the province, is located in this district.[1]

History[edit]

The minor district (King Amphoe) Si Wilai was established on January 1, 1988, when the four tambon Si Wilai, Chumphu Phon, Na Saeng and Na Sabaeng were split off from Bueng Kan district.[2] It was upgraded to a full district on July 4, 1994.[3]

Administration[edit]

The district is subdivided into 5 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 50 villages (muban). The subdistrict municipality (thesaban tambon) Si Wilai covers the whole tambon Si Wilai. There are further 4 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
