Mae Lan (Thai: แม่ลาน, pronounced [mɛ̂ː lāːn]) is a district (amphoe) of Pattani Province, southern Thailand.


The minor district (king amphoe) Mae Lan was formed on 1 April 1989 by splitting off three tambon from Khok Pho District.[1] Becoming effective of 7 September 1995 it was upgraded to a full district.[2]

As of 2018, the provisions of Thailand's Internal Security Act remain imposed on Mae Lan District. Internal security restrictions, maintained by Thailand's Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC) can result in curfews, prohibited entry, or prohibited transport of goods. It is considered one step below the imposition of full martial law.[3]


Neighboring districts are (from the west clockwise) Khok Pho, Nong Chik, and Yarang of Pattani Province, and Mueang Yala of Yala Province.


The district is divided into three sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 22 villages (muban). There are no municipal (thesaban) areas. There are three tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
