Bao'an District (Chinese: 宝安区; pinyin: Bǎo'ān Qū) is one of the seven districts comprising Shenzhen, a major economic city in Guangdong, People's Republic of China. It is one of three districts lying outside the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone, alongside Longgang. With 5 million people, Bao'an is Shenzhen's largest district.
