Bang Bon (Thai: บางบอน, pronounced [bāːŋ bɔ̄ːn]) is one of the 50 districts (khet) of Bangkok, Thailand. Its neighbours, clockwise from north, are Bang Khae, Phasi Charoen, Chom Thong, and Bang Khun Thian districts of Bangkok, Amphoe Mueang Samut Sakhon and Amphoe Krathum Baen of Samut Sakhon Province, and Nong Khaem District of Bangkok.

History[edit]

Formerly Bang Bon was a tambon of amphoe Bang Khun Thian in Thon Buri Province, prior to the merger of Thon Buri and Phra Nakhon into a single province, after which it was a sub-district of the Bang Khun Thian District.

On 14 October 1997, Bang Bon was split from Bang Khun Thian and established as a new district, and the district office opened on 6 March 1998. Its district office was the last office of Bangkok's 50 districts to open, first established temporarily at the Thepyada Arak Fresh Market building, but later moved to a permanent location on Ekkachai Road.

Administration[edit]

The district has four sub-districts (khwaeng).

1. Bang Bon Nuea  บางบอนเหนือ
2. Bang Bon Tai  บางบอนใต้
3. Khlong Bang Phran  คลองบางพราน
4. Khlong Bang Bon  คลองบางบอน
