Ban Chang, Thailand

About Us


The area originally was Tambon Phala of Mueang Rayong district. From 1963 onwards the American military used the U-Tapao airforce base, thus the community grew bigger.

The government created Ban Chang minor district (King Amphoe) on May 7, 1976 by splitting two tambon from Mueang district. It was upgraded to be full district on March 16, 1985.


Neighboring districts are (from the west clockwise) SattahipBang Lamung of Chonburi ProvinceNikhom Phatthanaand Mueang Rayong of Rayong Province. To the south is the Gulf of Thailand.
