To the north is the Gulf of Thailand, with islands encompassed by the Ko Samui District.HistoryOriginally, the area of the district was part of Sichon District, Nakhon Si Thammarat Province. In 1929 the two sub-districts Don Sak and Chaiyakhram were reassigned to Kanchanadit District. The district was created as a minor district on 24 March 1969 by splitting the two tambons, Don Sak and Chonlakhram, from Kanchanadit District. The citizens of tambon Chaiyakhram then asked to be included in the new district as well, which was done on 1 September of the same year. On 16 November 1971 it was promoted to full district status. The fourth tambon, Pak Prak, was created on 14 July 1978 from tambon Don Sak and Chaiyakhram.Administrative divisionsThe Don Sak District is subdivided into four sub-districts, which are further subdivided into 40 villages . All four tambons are administrated by a tambon administrative organization . Don Sak itself has township status and covers part of the tambon Don Sak.
