Wang Noi (Thai: วังน้อย, pronounced [wāŋ nɔ́ːj]) is a district (amphoe) in Ayutthaya Province, Thailand, 50 km north of Bangkok. The population of Wang Noi were mostly farmers but now this area is industrial.

Geography[edit]

The district is in the southeastern part of Ayutthaya province. Neighboring districts are (from the east clockwise) Nong Khae, Saraburi province, Nong Suea and Khlong Luan of Pathum Thani province, and Bang Pa-in and Uthai of Ayutthaya province.

History[edit]

The district was split off from the district Uthai in 1907. At first named Uthai Noi (อุทัยน้อย), it was renamed Wang Noi in 1917.[1]

Administration[edit]

The district is divided into 10 sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 68 villages (muban). Lam Ta Sao is a sub-district municipality (thesaban tambon), which covers the whole sub-district Lam Ta Sao and parts of Bo Ta Lo, Lam Sai, and Chamaep. There are a further nine tambon administrative organizations (TAO) for the non-municipal areas.
