The district is divided into three sub-districts (khwaeng). From west to east, these are:
1. Khlong Toei คลองเตย from the railway to Soi Sukhumvit 22
2. Khlong Tan คลองตัน from Soi Sukhumvit 22 to Soi Sukhumvit 36
3. Phra Khanong พระโขนง from Soi Sukhumvit 36 to Soi Sukhumvit 52
Khlong Toei is both the name of a sub-district and the district in which it lies. Phra Khanong is both a sub-district of Khlong Toei and a district on its own, with only sub-district Bang Chak. Furthermore, all three sub-districts listed above have counterparts with the addition of "nuea" (north) in Watthana District.
