Ban Ta Khun district office

Ban Ta Khun district officeBan Ta Khun (บ้านตาขุน) is the largest district areawise of Surat Thani province, but also the one with the lowest population density, as most of the district area is covered by the Khao Sok National Park. The district was established in 1973 as a minor district, and became a full district in 1976.

Municipal office of Khao WongDirectly next to the district office is also the office of the subdistrict municipality (thesaban tambon) Khao Wong (เทศบาลตำบลเขาวง). This was created in 1977 as a sanitary district, which like all sanitary district was upgraded to a municipality in 1999. The municipality only covers parts of the subdistrict Khao Wong around the main settlement, the remainder of the subdistrict is administrated by the TAO Khao Wong (องค์การบริหารส่วนตำบลเขาวง). The subdistrict municipality Khao Wong will be renamed to Ban Ta Khun later this year, maybe to be able to upgrade the TAO Khao Wong to a municipality later as well without having conflicting names.
