Thung Yang Daeng (Thai: ทุ่งยางแดง, pronounced [tʰûŋ jāːŋ dɛ̄ːŋ]) is a district (amphoe) of Pattani Province, southern Thailand.

History[edit]

The minor district (king amphoe) Thung Yang Daeng was created on 16 May 1977, when four tambons were split off from Mayo District.[1] On 4 July 1994 it was upgraded to a full district.[2]

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the south clockwise): Raman of Yala Province; Yarang, Mayo, Sai Buri, and Kapho of Pattani Province.
