Bueng Samakkhi (Thai: บึงสามัคคี, pronounced [bɯ̄ŋ sǎː.mák.kʰīː]) is a district (Amphoe) in the eastern part of Kamphaeng Phet Province, central Thailand.

History[edit]

Tambon Rahan, Wang Cha-on and Bueng Samakkhi were separated from Khanu Woralaksaburi district to form the minor district (King Amphoe) Bueng Samakkhi on April 30, 1994 .[1] The government selected the name Bueng Samakkhi to commemorate the unity of the people in the district.

Following a decision of the Thai government on May 15, 2007, all of the 81 minor districts were to be upgraded to full districts.[2] With the publishing in the Royal Gazette on August 24 the upgrade became official .[3]
