Chonnabot (Thai: ชนบท, pronounced [t͡ɕʰōn.nā.bòt]) is a district (Amphoe) of Khon Kaen Province, northeastern Thailand.


Mueang Chonbot (ชลบถ) was established at the begin of the Rattanakosin era of around 1783. Its center was at Ban Nong Kong Kaeo.

In 1914, it was converted to a district. However, in 1943, it was downgraded to be part of Ban Phai district.[1] In 1966, the district was re-established, consisting of the tambon Chonnabot, Kut Phia Khom, Ban Thaen and Wang Saeng.[2]
