Thung Khao Luang (Thai : ทุ่งเขาหลวง, pronounced [tʰûŋ kʰǎw lǔa̯ŋ] ) is a district ( amphoe ) of Roi Et Province, Thailand.
Thai, Central Thai, is the sole official and national language of Thailand and the first language of the Central Thai people. 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.
Roi Et is one of the northeastern provinces (changwat) of Thailand. Neighboring provinces are Kalasin, Mukdahan, Yasothon, Sisaket, Surin, and Maha Sarakham.
The district is in central Roi Et Province. Neighboring districts are (from the south clockwise): At Samat, Thawat Buri, and Selaphum.

Thawat Buri is a district (amphoe) of Roi Et Province, Thailand.

The important water resource is the Chi River.
The minor district was created on 1 July 1997, when the four tambons Thung Khao Luang, Thoet Thai, Bueng Ngam, and Maba were split off from Thawat Buri District.
The Thai government on 15 May 2007 upgraded all of 81 minor districts to full districts.With publication in the Royal Gazette on 24 August, the upgrade became official.
The district is divided into five sub-districts ( tambons ), which are further subdivided into 50 villages ( mubans ). There are no municipal ( thesaban ) areas. There are five tambon administrative organization (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.
Thesaban are the municipalities of Thailand. There are three levels of municipalities: city, town, and sub-district. Bangkok and Pattaya are special municipal entities not included in the thesaban system.

The largely agricultural local economy is augmented by remittances from local women who married foreigners and live abroad. In Ban Jaan (บ้านจาร) village, a settlement of 540 households, at least 100 households have a Western son-in-law, mostly Swiss, leading the town to be known among Thais as the "Swiss village".Local officials claim the number of resident Swiss is overstated as most live with their wives in Switzerland.
