Doi Saket ( _th. ดอยสะเก็ด) is a district ("Amphoe") in the eastern part of Chiang Mai Province in northern Thailand.

History

The district was established in 1902.

Geography

Neighboring districts are (from the south clockwise) Mae On, San Kamphaeng, San Sai, Mae Taeng, Phrao of Chiang Mai Province, Wiang Pa Pao of Chiang Rai Province and Mueang Pan of Lampang Province.

Life Style

The district is predominantly a rural farming area, containing a mixture of rice fields on the valley floor to orchard and other farming on the hillsides. The village proper is located a 30 minute drive east from Tha Pae Gate in Chiang Mai. It has some service providers for businesses in the neighboring city, such as a commercial laundry for Chiang Mai's hotels and a concrete production facility. However, the town's economic focus is still agricultural, and the city boasts a large produce market. The village is most famous with Thai tourists for its beautiful, modern-style wall murals inside of Wat Doi Saket.

Administration

The district is subdivided into 14 subdistricts ("tambon"), which are further subdivided into 110 villages ("muban"). Doi Saket is a township ("thesaban tambon"), which covers parts of "tambon" Choeng Doi and Luang Nuea. There are further 13 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
