Si Wilai (Thai: ศรีวิไล, pronounced [sǐː wí.lāj]) is a district (amphoe) in the eastern part of Bueng Kan Province, northeastern Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Mueang Bueng Kan, Seka, and Phon Charoen. Phu Thok, the emblematic mountain of the province, is in this district.[1]

History[edit]

The minor district (king amphoe) Si Wilai was established on 1 January 1988, when the four tambon Si Wilai, Chumphu Phon, Na Saeng, and Na Sabaeng were split off from Bueng Kan District.[2] It was upgraded to a full district on 4 July 1994.[3]

Administration[edit]

The district is divided into five sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 50 villages (muban). The sub-district municipality (thesaban tambon) Si Wilai covers the whole tambon Si Wilai. There are a further four tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
