Kut Khaopun (Thai: กุดข้าวปุ้น, pronounced [kùt kʰâːw.pûn]) is a district (Amphoe) in the northern part of Ubon Ratchathani Province, northeastern Thailand.

History[edit]

The minor district (King Amphoe) Kut Khaopun was created on July 12, 1971, when the four tambon Khaopun, Ka Bin, Kaeng Kheng and Non Sawang were split off from Trakan Phuet Phon district.[1] It was upgraded to a full district on March 25, 1979.[2]
