Hongqiao District (simplified Chinese: 红桥区; traditional Chinese: 紅橋區; pinyin: Hóngqiáo Qū) is a district in the city of Tianjin, China. The name of the district derives from the name of a bridge - Dahong Bridge (大红桥; 大虹橋; Dàhóng Qiáo; "big red bridge") - on the Ziya River, a tributary of Hai River.
