Luzhou District (Chinese: 蘆洲區; Hanyu Pinyin: Lúzhōu Qū; Tongyong Pinyin: Lújhou Cyu; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Lô·-chiu-khu) is an inner city district in northwestern New Taipei City, Taiwan (Republic of China). It is the second smallest district in New Taipei City after Yonghe District.


Historically the area was called Lō·-chiu (鷺州) and Hê-siūⁿ-chiu (和尚州). Until the 25 December 2010 creation of New Taipei, Luzhou was itself a county-controlled city (蘆洲市; Lúzhōu Shì; Lô·-chiu Chhī; Postal map spelling: Luchou) in the former Taipei County.


It has an area of 7.4351 km² (2013) and a population of 199,234 people in 68,441 households (May 2014). Luzhou has the second highest population density in Taiwan (after Yonghe) and 13th in the world,[1] with over 26,600 people per km².
