History[eedit | eedit soorce]

The aurie o Bang Kapi wis ance a jungle an haes a history datin back tae Keeng Nangklao period when Chao Phraya Bodindecha (เจ้าพระยาบดินทรเดชา) led a troop tae fecht rebels in Champassack an Louangphabang an brocht back fowk tae settle here.

Admeenistrative destricts in the caipital ceety wur chyngit frae amphoe an tambon tae destrict (khet) an sub-destrict (khwaeng), respectively. Bang Kapi thus became a destrict o the newly combined province, haein at that time 9 sub-destricts.

In 1977, the Sam Sen Nok sub-destrict wis muivit tae Huai Khwang Destrict.
