Nong Chik (Thai: หนองจิก) is a district (amphoe) in Pattani Province, southern Thailand.

History[edit]

Nong Chik was one of the seven states (Mueang) into which the Pattani kingdom was split in the early 19th century to diminish the power of the often rebellious tributary kingdom. The capital was located in tambon Nong Mai (Yarang district). 1901 the district office was moved to Tu Yong, where it is still located today.

Due to the district office location in Tu Yong, the district was renamed to Tu Yong in 1917.[1] In 1938 it was renamed back to the historical name Nong Chik.[2]

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the east clockwise) Mueang Pattani, Yarang, Mae Lan and Khok Pho of Pattani Province, and Thepha of Songkhla Province. To the north is the Gulf of Thailand.
