Khok Sung (Thai: โคกสูง) is a district (amphoe) in the eastern part of Sa Kaeo Province, eastern Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the south clockwise) Aranyaprathet, Watthana Nakhon and Ta Phraya of Sa Kaeo Province, and to the east Banteay Meanchey of Cambodia.

History[edit]

The minor district (king amphoe) was established 15 July 1996 with area split from Ta Phraya district.[1]

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

Administration[edit]

The district is divided into four sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 38 villages (muban). There are no municipal (thesaban) areas, and further four tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
