Plai Phraya (Thai: ปลายพระยา) is a district (amphoe) in Krabi Province, Thailand.


Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Phanom, Phrasaeng, Chai Buri (all Surat Thani Province), Khao Phanom and Ao Luek of Krabi Province, and Thap Put of Phang Nga Province.

Khlong Phraya Wildlife Sanctuary is on Surat Thani Province boundary.


The minor district (king amphoe) Plai Phraya was created on 15 June 1973, when the three tambon, Plai Phraya, Khao Khen, and Khao To were split off from Ao Luek District.[1] It was upgraded to a full district on 12 April 1977.[2]


The district is divided into four sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 33 villages (muban). Plai Phraya has township (thesaban tambon) status, covering parts of tambon Plai Phraya. Each of the tambon is administrated by a tambon administrative organization (TAO).
