The Tapi River forms part of the western boundary of the district. A smaller river in the district is the Khlong Lamphun .

History

Lamphun district, one of the original districts of Surat Thani province, was administrated from the town of Ban Na, which is now the center of the Ban Na Doem district. On July 1 1938 however the district office was moved to Na San and the district was renamed to Ban Na San one year later.

Becoming effective on April 15 1976 the area around Ban Na was split off from Ban Na San district and formed a new minor district ("king amphoe") [cite journal|journal=Royal Gazette|volume=93|issue=58 ง|pages=857|title=ประกาศกระทรวงมหาดไทย เรื่อง แบ่งท้องที่อำเภอบ้านนาสาร จังหวัดสุราษฎร์ธานี ตั้งเป็นกิ่งอำเภอบ้านนาเดิม|url=http://www.ratchakitcha.soc.go.th/DATA/PDF/2519/D/058/857.PDF|date=April 13 1976|language=Thai] . The minor district was originally subdivided into the two "tambon" Ban Na and Tha Ruea. August 15 1982 the "tambon" Sap Thawi was split from Tha Ruea, on July 1 1983 Na Tai from Ban Na.

On May 21 1990 the minor district was elevated to full district status [cite journal|journal=Royal Gazette|volume=107|issue=83 ก special |pages=1–4|title=พระราชกฤษฎีกาตั้งอำเภอห้วยผึ้ง อำเภอวังวิเศษ อำเภอคลองหาด อำเภอป่าบอน อำเภอหนองหญ้าปล้อง อำเภอวังโป่ง อำเภอควนเนียง อำเภอหนองหญ้าไซ อำเภอบ้านนาเดิม อำเภอทุ่งฝน อำเภอสร้างคอม และอำเภอทองแสนขัน พ.ศ. ๒๕๓๓|url=http://www.ratchakitcha.soc.go.th/DATA/PDF/2533/A/083/1.PDF|date=May 21 1994|language=Thai] .

Administration

Ban Na Doem is subdivided into 4 subdistricts ("tambon"), which are further subdivided into 30 villages ("muban"). There is one township ("thesaban tambon") Ban Na, covering parts of "tambon" Ban Na and Na Tai. Each "tambon" has a Tambon administrative organization (TAO), responsible for the area not covered by the township.
