Ban Na San ( _th. บ้านนาสาร) is a district ("amphoe") of Surat Thani Province, Thailand.


Neighboring districts are (from the east clockwise) Nopphitam and Phipun of Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, Wiang Sa, Khian Sa, Ban Na Doem, Mueang Surat Thani and Kanchanadit.

The east of the district is located within the hills of the Nakhon Si Thammarat mountain range and is part of the Tai Rom Yen National Park.


The district dates back to the Lamphun district, once responsible for all of the southeastern part of the present-day province. Originally the district was subdivided into 7 "tambon" - Ban Na, Tha Ruea , Kobkaeb , Thung Tao, I-Pan , Prasaeng and Phanom. In 1899 the southern part was split of as Prasaeng district and Phanom minor district.

Originally the district was administrated from Nakhon Si Thammarat, and was transferred to Chaiya (now Surat Thani) in 1906.

On April 29 1918 the district was renamed to Ban Na, the location of the district office. On July 1 1938 the district office was moved to Na San and the district was renamed on April 20 1939 to Ban Na San.

Ban Na San is subdivided into 11 subdistricts ("tambon"), which are further subdivided into 65 villages ("muban"). There is one town ("thesaban mueang") Na San, which covers the complete "tambon" Na San. Each "tambon" except Na San has a Tambon administrative organization (TAO).
