Moei Wadi (Thai: เมยวดี) is a district (amphoe) in the northern part of Roi Et Province, northeastern Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the east clockwise) Nong Phok and Phon Thong of Roi Et Province, Kuchinarai of Kalasin Province and Nong Sung of Mukdahan Province.

History[edit]

The minor district (king amphoe) Moei Wadi was established on 1 April 1978, when the two tambon Moei Wadi and Chumphon were split off from Phon Thong District.[1] It was upgraded to a full district on 3 November 1993.[2]

Administration[edit]

The district is divided into four sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 43 villages (muban). There are no municipal (thesabans), and four tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
