The urban district (Vietnamese: quận) is the second-level administrative subdivision in Vietnam. Other kinds of second-level administrative subdivision of Vietnam are the district (huyện), the provincial cities (thành phố trực thuộc tỉnh), and the district-level towns (Thị xã). Urban districts can only subordinate to the centrally-controlled municipalities. The urban district is subdivided into wards (phường).

Before 1975, in South Vietnam, all second-level administrative subdivisions are called districts (quận), regardless of urban or rural areas. For example, quận Châu Thành, Vĩnh Long Province is in the urban of present Vĩnh Long city, and quận Trà Ôn was the rural of present Vĩnh Long Province.

As of December 31, 2008, Vietnam has 46 urban districts.[1] Ho Chi Minh City with 19 urban districts has the most. Cần Thơ City with 5 urban districts has the least.
