Lak Si (Thai: หลักสี่; IPA: [làk sìː]) is one of the 50 districts (Khet) of Bangkok, Thailand. It is bounded by (from north clockwise): Don Mueang, Bang Khen and Chatuchak of Bangkok; Amphoe Mueang and Amphoe Pak Kret of Nonthaburi Province.


The name Lak Si means the fourth milestone. The community here was called Lak Si because of the fourth milestone of Khlong Prem Prachakhon (คลองเปรมประชากร) dug during King Chulalongkorn linking Bangkok toward Bang Pa-In. Lak Si became a district on 21 November 1997, separating from Don Mueang district.



The district is sub-divided into two sub-districts (Kwaeng).
