Din Daeng (Thai: ดินแดง, pronounced [dīn dɛ̄ːŋ]) is one of the 50 districts (khet) of Bangkok, Thailand. Its neighbours, clockwise from north, are Chatuchak, Huai Khwang, Ratchathewi, and Phaya Thai.

History[edit]

The district was created in 1993, when the eastern part of Phaya Thai was split off to form a new district. The district is highly populated partly due to the concentration of apartments built by National Housing Authority. They are along Din Daeng Road and Pracha Songkhro Road.

Administration[edit]

The district is divided into two sub-districts (khwaeng).

1. Din Daeng  ดินแดง
2. Ratchadaphisek  รัชดาภิเษก

Transportation[edit]

Entrance to Huai Khwang station

The MRT passes along Din Daeng's eastern border (touching Huai Khwang) with five stations: Phra Ram 9, Thailand Cultural Centre, Huai Khwang, Sutthisan, and Ratchadaphisek.
