Bang Pakong ( _th. บางปะกง) is a district ("Amphoe") in the western part of Chachoengsao Province, central Thailand.

Bang Pakong district name comes from the Bang Pakong River. The area has many industrial estates.

History

Bang Pakong district was established in 1907. The first temporary district office was a building within the "Wat" Bon Khongkharam . In 1908 the government moved the office to the bank of the Bang Pakong River in Tambon Tha Sa-an, which is still the location today.

Geography

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Ban Pho of Chachoengsao Province, Phan Thong, Mueang Chon Buri of Chon Buri Province, the Bay of Bangkok and Bang Bo of Samut Prakan Province.

The important water resource is the Bang Pakong River, which mouths into the Bay of Bangkok within the district. Bang Na-Trat highway runs through the district.

Administration

The district is subdivided into 12 subdistricts ("tambon"), which are further subdivided into 107 villages ("muban"). There are 5 townships ("thesaban tambon") - Bang Pakong, Tha Sa-an, Tha Kham and Hom Sim each covers parts of the same-named "tambon", while Bang Wua covers parts of "tambon" Bang Wua, Bang Samak and Bang Kluea. There are further 12 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
