Laplae (Thai: ลับแล; IPA: [láp.lɛ̄ː]) is a district (Amphoe) in the western part of Uttaradit Province, northern Thailand.


 History
 
In the past, the district office of Laplae was located in Mueang Thung Yang. Later it was moved to Mon Cham Sin, about 1 km north of the present location. As the location of the office was inconvenient to reach, Luang Si Phanon Mat ordered to move the district office to Mon Sayammin. At the same time, King Chulalongkorn visited Laplae and chose to reserve Mon Cham Sin for position the Buddha statue named Phra Lua. This statue was built from the gold left when building Phra Phuttha Chinnarat, Phitsanulok Province.
