Districts of Laos

Due to the breakup of Xaisômboun special region, there have been some changes to HASC codes and serial numbers.

The secondary administrative divisions of Laos are districts. A map can be found on page 15 of this excerpt from an Atlas of Laos . I've found several sources with lists of districts, but they differ slightly from one another. The following list includes all the different districts from all of my sources.
