Map Ta Phut (Thai: มาบตาพุด, pronounced [mâːp tāː pʰút]) is a town (thesaban mueang) in Rayong Province, Thailand. It is the site of Thailand's largest industrial park, the Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate. Provincial offices are located in Map Ta Phut.


The town covers parts of the sub-districts Noen Phra and Thap Ma, the whole sub-districts Huai Pong and Map Tha Phut of Mueang Rayong District, and parts of Map Kha sub-district in Nikhom Phatthana District.


In 1962, the sanitary district (sukhaphiban) Map Tha Phut was created as the first local government of the settlement.[1] In 1991 it was upgraded to a sub-district municipality (thesaban tambon),[2] and in 2001 to a town.[3]
