Noen Kham (Thai: เนินขาม, pronounced [nɤ̄ːn kʰǎːm]) is the southwesternmost district (amphoe) of Chainat Province, central Thailand.

History[edit]

The two tambon Noen Kham and Kabok Tia of Hankha district were separated and created the new minor district (King Amphoe) on July 1, 1997.[1]

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

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Hankha of Chainat Province, Doem Bang Nang Buat, Dan Chang of Suphanburi Province and Ban Rai of Uthai Thani Province.

Administration[edit]

The district is subdivided into 3 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 48 villages (muban). There are no municipal (thesaban) areas, and 3 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
