Sa Kaew, also spelt Sa Kaeo, is a city in Inner Eastern Thailand.

Sa Kaew is an eastern border town of Thailand, located approximately 245km from Bangkok. In the past, it was once an important and prosperous community with a long history since the Suvarnabhumi and the Dvaravati Kingdoms, which can be noticed from the group of various remains of ancient monuments and architecture, scattered in the province, as well as artefacts telling the history and glory of the past to the descendants.

Apart from the historical ancient remains worthy for study, Sa Kaew also possesses abundant natural resources such as the Pang Sida National Park and the Ta Phraya National Park, as well as, the natural canyonlike soil sculpture caused by ground subsidence called "Lalu" with unique characteristics.

At the Thai border in Amphoe Aranyaprathet, Sa Kaew is a grand gate opening to Cambodia, connecting international transportation and tourism within one route. Moreover, Rong Kluea Market offers both cheap and second-hand products from various neighbouring countries.

Sa Kaew is the 74th province of Thailand and was originally a satellite town of Prachin Buri (called Prachim in the past). In 1933, the system of Thesaphiban or administrative circle was abolished and Prachin Buri was uplifted to a province. Therefore, Sa Kaew became a district in Prachin Buri. It was later separated from the province and officially acclaimed a province on 1st December, 1993.
