Pueai Noi (Thai: เปือยน้อย, pronounced [pɯ̄a̯j nɔ́ːj]) is a district (amphoe) in the southwestern part of Khon Kaen Province, northeastern Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the south clockwise): Nong Song Hong and Ban Phai of Khon Kaen Province; Kut Rang and Na Chueak of Maha Sarakham Province.

History[edit]

The minor district (king amphoe) Phueai Noi was established on 17 January 1977, with the two tambons Phueai Noi and Wang Muang from Ban Phai District.[1] It was upgraded to a full district on 4 July 1994.[2]

Administration[edit]

The district is divided into four subdistricts (tambons), which are further subdivided into 32 villages (mubans). Pueai Noi is a subdistrict municipality (thesaban tambon) which covers parts of tambons Phueai Noi and Sa Kaeo, and Sa Kaeo a subdistrict municipality which covers the remaining areas of the two subdistricts. There are two tambon administrative organizations (TAO), one for each of the remaining subdistricts.
