Na Tan (Thai: นาตาล, pronounced [nāː tāːn]) is a district (Amphoe) in the northeastern part of Ubon Ratchathani Province, northeastern Thailand.

History[edit]

Na Tan area was separated from Khemarat district to create a minor district (King Amphoe) on April 30, 1994.[1]

Following a decision by 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 south clockwise) Pho Sai and Khemarat. To the east across the Mekong river is the Laotian province of Salavan.

The important water resource is the Mekong river.

Administration[edit]

The district is subdivided into 4 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 64 villages (muban). There are no municipal (thesaban) areas, and four Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
