Tak Bai ( _th. ตากใบ) is a district ("Amphoe") in the southeastern part of Narathiwat Province, southern Thailand.


When the United Kingdom and Siam (Thailand) made the Anglo-Siamese Treaty of 1909, they agreed to use the Golok river (Sungai Golok) nearby "Wat" Chonthara Singhe (วัดชลธาราสิงเห) as the boundary between British Malaya and Siam due to the culture and arts inside the temple.

The district was officially created on August 12, 1909. [cite journal|journal=Royal Gazette|volume=26|issue=0 ง|pages=1107|title=ประกาศกระทรวงมหาดไทย ประกาศตั้งอำเภอสะเดาและอำเภอตากใบ|url=|date=August 22 1909|language=Thai]

On October 25, 2004 at least 85 demonstrators died after a brutal police action in the so called Tak Bai Incident.


Neighboring districts are (from the southwest clockwise) Su-ngai Kolok, Su-ngai Padi, Cho-airong, Mueang Narathiwat of Narathiwat province, the Gulf of Thailand. To the southeast is the state Kelantan of Malaysia.

The boundary crossing is at Pengkalan Kubur (Malaysia) and Taba (Thailand).


The district is subdivided into 8 subdistricts ("tambon"), which are further subdivided into 55 villages ("muban"). Tak Bai itself has town ("thesaban mueang") status and covers parts of "tambon" Che He. There are further 8 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
