Wang Nam Yen ( _th. วังน้ำเย็น) is a district ("Amphoe") in the southern part of Sa Kaeo Province, eastern Thailand.

History

In 1971 the government built a new road connecting Chanthaburi with Sa Kaeo. Then the people from Ban Tha Ta Si and Ban Nong Prue moved to settle their new village along the new road in the area. They named the new village Ban Wang Nam Yen after their important water resource. It was upgraded to "Tambon" Wang Nam Yen of Sa Kaeo district in 1975. On December 1 1976 the minor district ("King Amphoe") Wang Nam Yen was created, consisting of the three "tambon" Wang Nam Yen, Wang Sombun and Ta Lang Nai.
