Hua Sai ( _th. หัวไทร) is a district ("Amphoe") in the southeastern part of Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, southern Thailand.

Geography

Neighboring districts are (from the south clockwise) Ranot of Songkhla Province, Khuan Khanun and Pa Phayom of Phattalung Province, Cha-uat, Chian Yai and Pak Phanang of Nakhon Si Thammarat Province. To the east is the Gulf of Thailand.

History

The district was established in 1904, then named Khao Phang Krai (เขาพังไกร), as the administrative center was located in "tambon" Khao Phang Krai. When the center was moved in 1906 to "tambon" Hua Sai the district was renamed accordingly. In 1924 the district was reduced to a minor district ("King Amphoe") under Pak Phanang district. In the same year the district office was moved to its present location to village 8 of "tambon" Hua Sai. 1937 the district regained full district status.
