Khlong Sam Wa (Thai: คลองสามวา; IPA: [kʰlɔ̄ːŋ.sǎːm.wāː]) is one of the 50 districts (Khet) of Bangkok, Thailand. It is bounded by other districts (from north clockwise): Amphoe Lam Luk Ka of Pathum Thani Province, Nong Chok, Min Buri, Khan Na Yao, Bang Khen,and Sai Mai of Bangkok.
Khlong Sam Wa was established as a district on 21 November 1997 by splitting out from Min Buri. Khlong Sam Wa was the name of an amphoe in Min Buri and hence the name is used as the district name. In 1947 when the area was still rural, the farming community of Bang Chan was chosen at the beginning of what was to become the academic disciple of Thai studies, as centre for a long-term study.
The district is divided into 5 sub-districts (Kwaeng).
