Bang Sao Thong (Thai: บางเสาธง; pronounced [bāːŋ sǎw tʰōŋ]) is a district (amphoe) of Samut Prakan Province in central Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are Lat Krabang (Bangkok) to the north, Bang Bo to the east and Bang Phli to the west.

History[edit]

Bang Phli New Town (Thai Mueang Mai Bang Phli) was established between 1992 and 1993 as a residential area for high-income families. The area around the new town, comprising three tambons, was then split off from Bang Phli District and formed the new minor district (king amphoe), becoming effective on 1 April 1995.[1]

The Thai government, on 15 May 2007, upgraded all 81 minor districts to full districts.[2] On 24 August 2007 the upgrade became official.[3]

Economy[edit]

Nissan has an automobile factory in the district. Nissan produces hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) there based on its e-Power technology as well as batteries for electric vehicles. It has a production capacity of 370,000 vehicles a year. [4]

Administration[edit]

The district is divided into three sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 39 villages (muban). Bang Sao Thong is a township (thesaban tambon) which covers parts of tambon Bang Sao Thong and Sisa Chorakhe Yai. Each of the tambons has a tambon administrative organization (TAO) responsible for non-municipal areas.
