Bannang Sata ( _th. บันนังสตา) is a district ("Amphoe") in the southern part of Yala Province, southern Thailand.

History

The name Bannang Sata is actually the Thai corruption of Benang Setar (Jawi: بنڠ ستار), its original Malay name. "Benang" means sewing thread, while "setar" is a tree with small and sour fruit (Bouea macrophylla).

In the past the district was named Ba Cho (บาเจาะ) controlled by Mueang Raman, created in 1907. The name Ba Cho is actually the Thai corruption of Bachok (Jawi: باچوق), its original Malay name. Later when the government reformed administration, the district office was moved to a new location and renamed to be Bannang Sata.

Geography

Neighboring districts are (from the northwest clockwise) Yaha, Krong Pinang, Raman of Yala province, Rueso, Si Sakhon of Narathiwat province, Than To of Yala province again and the state Kedah of Malaysia.

Administration

The district is subdivided into 6 subdistricts ("tambon"), which are further subdivided into 50 villages ("muban"). Bannang Sata is a subdistrict municipality ("thesaban tambon") covering parts of the "tambon" Bannang Sata. There are further 6 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
