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


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]


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.


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).
