Sau Mau Ping (秀茂坪, Jyutping: Sau3 Mau6 Ping4) is an area in eastern New Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Its Chinese name was formerly So Mau Ping (蘇茅坪), but this was often mis-rendered So Mo Ping (掃墓坪), meaning a place to 'visit one's ancestors'. In fact, during World War II, much of the area was used as a cemetery. The Chinese name was considered inappropriate for a residential area and so it was changed to the current one, meaning "nice and prosperous".

Sau Mau Ping was part of the early Kwun Tong satellite city in Hong Kong. Hong Sing Garden and Po Tat Estate are major public housing estates in the area. There is a shopping mall below Po Tat Estate
