The district was established in 1902.
The district is predominantly a rural farming area, containing a mixture of rice fields on the valley floor to orchard and other farming on the hillsides. The village proper is located a 30 minute drive east from Tha Pae Gate in Chiang Mai. It has some service providers for businesses in the neighboring city, such as a commercial laundry for Chiang Mai's hotels and a concrete production facility. However, the town's economic focus is still agricultural, and the city boasts a large produce market. The village is most famous with Thai tourists for its beautiful, modern-style wall murals inside of Wat Doi Saket.
The district is subdivided into 14 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 110 villages (muban). Doi Saket is a township (thesaban tambon), which covers parts of tambon Choeng Doi and Luang Nuea. There are further 13 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
