Prawet District (Thai: ประเวศ, pronounced [prā.wêːt]) is one of the 50 districts of Bangkok, Thailand. It is in the southeast. Neighboring districts are (from the east clockwise) Bang Phli (Samut Prakan Province), Bang Na, Phra Khanong, Suan Luang, Bang Kapi, Saphan Sung and Lat Krabang (Bangkok).

History[edit]

Prawet was once part of Phra Khanong District. Prawet was elevated to become a separate district in 1989. Part of Prawet, especially the Suan Luang Sub-district, was carved out to establish Suan Luang District on 14 January 1994.

In October 2005 the plan to create the special administrative area Nakhon Suvarnabhumi around the new Bangkok airport became public. Prawet was supposed to be one of five districts to be included in this new area.

Administration[edit]

The district is sub-divided into three sub-districts (khwaeng).

1. Prawet ประเวศ
2. Nong Bon หนองบอน
3. Dokmai ดอกไม้

Education[edit]

Pan-Asia International School is in Prawet.[2] Wells International School has its Wells International Kindergarten Bangna Campus in Prawet.[3]
