Thung Hua Chang (Thai : ทุ่งหัวช้าง, pronounced [tʰûŋ hǔa̯ t͡ɕʰáːŋ] ) is a district ( amphoe ) of Lamphun Province, northern Thailand.
Thai, Central Thai, is the sole official and national language of Thailand and the first language of the Central Thai people and vast majority of Thai Chinese. It is a member of the Tai group of the Kra–Dai language family. Over half of Thai vocabulary is derived from or borrowed from Pali, Sanskrit, Mon and Old Khmer. It is a tonal and analytic language, similar to Chinese and Vietnamese.
An amphoe is the second level administrative subdivision of Thailand. Usually translated as "district". Amphoe make up the provinces, and are analogous to counties. The chief district officer is Nai Amphoe (นายอำเภอ). Amphoe are divided into tambons,, or sub-districts.
Lamphun is one of the northern provinces (changwat) of Thailand. Neighboring provinces are Chiang Mai, Lampang, and Tak.
The minor district ( king amphoe ) Thung Hua Chang was created on 1 February 1987, when three tambons were split off from Li District.It was upgraded to a full district on 4 November 1993.

The district is divided into three sub-districts ( tambons ), which are further subdivided into 35 villages ( mubans ). Thung Hua Chang is a township ( thesaban tambon ) which covers parts of the same-named tambon. There are a further three tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
Tambon is a local governmental unit in Thailand. Below district (amphoe) and province (changwat), they form the third administrative subdivision level. As of 2016 there were 7,255 tambons, not including the 180 khwaeng of Bangkok, which are set at the same administrative level, thus every district contains eight to ten tambon. Tambon is usually translated as "township" or "subdistrict" in English — the latter is the recommended translation, though also often used for king amphoe, the designation for a subdistrict acting as a branch of the parent district. Tambon are further subdivided into 69,307 villages (muban), about ten per tambon. Tambon within cities or towns are not subdivided into villages, but may have less formal communities called chumchon (ชุมชน) that may be formed into community associations.
Muban is the lowest administrative sub-division of Thailand. Usually translated as 'village' and sometimes as 'hamlet', they are a subdivision of a tambon (subdistrict). As of 2008, there were 74,944 administrative mubans in Thailand. As of the 1990 census, the average village consisted of 144 households or 746 persons.
