Mae Poen (Thai: แม่เปิน, pronounced [mɛ̂ː pɤ̄n]) is a district (amphoe) in the western part of Nakhon Sawan province, central Thailand.

History

Tambon Mae Poen was separated from Lat Yao district to become a minor district (king amphoe) on 15 July 1996.[1]

On 15 May 2007, all of Thailand's 81 minor districts were upgraded to full districts.[2] With publication in the Royal Gazette on 24 August, the upgrade became official .[3]

Geography

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise): Mae Wong and Chum Ta Bong of Nakhon Sawan Province, Lan Sak and Ban Rai of Uthai Thani province, and Umphang of Tak province.

Administration

The district is divided into a single sub-district (tambon), which is further subdivided into 24 villages (mubans). There are no municipal (thesaban) areas, and a single tambon administrative organization (TAO).
