The original center of the mueang later became part of the minor district Chiang Saen Luang, so in 1939 this minor district was renamed to Chiang Saen, while the district Chiang Saen itself was renamed to Mae Chan.[1] Administration[edit] Central administration[edit] The district Mae Chan is subdivided into 11 subdistricts (Tambon), which are further subdivided into 139 administrative villages (Muban).
