Tha Sae ( _th. ท่าแซะ) is a district ("Amphoe") in the northwestern part of
Chumphon Province, southern Thailand.

History

"Mueang" Tha Sae was under "Mueang" Chumphon, with its governor having the rank "Phra". King Chulalongkorn downgraded Mueang Tha Sae to a district of Chumphon province. In 1920 the government downgraded Tha Sae to a minor district ("King Amphoe") of Pathio district. It was officially upgraded back to a full district again in 1940.

The district name originates from the public canal pier (in Thai: "Tha"), where plenty of Catechu Trees ("Callerya atropurpurea") are growing.

Geography

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Bang Saphan Noi of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province, Pathio and Mueang Chumphon of Chumphon Province, and Kra Buri of Ranong Province. To the west is the Tanintharyi Division of Myanmar.

The important water resources are the Tha Sae and Rap Ro rivers.

Administration

The district is subdivided into 10 subdistricts ("tambon"), which are further subdivided into 115 villages ("muban"). Tha Sae is a township ("thesaban tambon") covering parts of the "tambon" Tha Sea. Noen Sam Thi covers further parts of "tambon" Tha Sae. There are further 10 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
