Bang Khla District (Thai: บางคล้า, pronounced [bāːŋ kʰláː]) is a district (amphoe) of Chachoengsao Province, central Thailand.

History[edit]

Bang Khla District was established in 1901. The district office was in Wat Mai Bang Khla, and in 2019 in Ban Suan Subdistrict. Bang Khla is the name of the village Ban Bang Khla, which is on the khlong ('canal') Bang Khla. As the district office was not in the center of the district area, the government moved it to Tao Sura, five kilometres from the old site. Later they changed the name of the tambon to Bang Khla to match the district name.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the east clockwise): Ratchasan, Plaeng Yao, Ban Pho, Mueang Chachoengsao, Khlong Khuean of Chachoengsao Province; and Ban Sang of Prachinburi Province.

The important water resource is the Bang Pakong River.

Administration[edit]

Central administration[edit]

Bang Khla is divided into nine subdistricts (tambons), which are further subdivided into 56 administrative villages (mubans).
