Suan Phueng ( _th. สวนผึ้ง) is a district ("Amphoe") in the western part of Ratchaburi Province, central Thailand.

History

Suan Phueng was the rural area of Chom Bueng district. The government sent a group of developing soldiers to the area between 1968-1971. Later it was created to be a minor district ("King Amphoe") on November 15th, 1974, consisting of the three "tambon" Suan Phueng, Pa Wai and Ban Bueng.

Etymology

The name "Suan Phueng" (lit. "Garden of bees") originates from Phueng trees ("Ficus albipila") that are found commonly in the district. In these trees bees (Thai: Phueng) often built there nests.

Geography

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Mueang Kanchanaburi and Dan Makham Tia of Kanchanaburi Province, Chom Bueng and Ban Kha of Ratchanburi Province. To the west is Tanintharyi Division of Myanmar.

The important water resource is the Phachi River.

Administration

The district is subdivided into 4 subdistricts ("tambon"), which are further subdivided into 37 villages ("muban"). There are two subdistrict municipalities ("thesaban tambon") within the district - Suan Phueng covers parts of the "tambon" Suan Phueng, and Ban Chat Pa Wai covers parts of the "tambon" Pa Wai and Tha Khoei.The missing numbers are the "tambon" which now form Ban Kha minor district.
