Noen Kham (Thai: เนินขาม, pronounced [nɤ̄ːn kʰǎːm]) is the southwesternmost district (amphoe) of Chai Nat province, central Thailand.

History

The two tambons Noen Kham and Kabok Tia of Hankha district were separated and created the new minor district (king amphoe) on 1 July 1997.[1]

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

The district is divided into three sub-districts (tambons), which are further subdivided into 48 villages (mubans). There are no municipal (thesaban) areas, and three tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
