Chaoyang District (simplified Chinese: 朝阳区; traditional Chinese: 朝陽區; pinyin: Cháoyáng Qū; lit. "facing the sun") is a district of the city proper of Beijing, China.

Chaoyang is home to the majority of Beijing's many foreign embassies, the well-known Sanlitun bar street, as well as Beijing's growing central business district. The Olympic Green, built for the 2008 Summer Olympics, is also in Chaoyang. Chaoyang extends west to Chaoyangmen on the eastern 2nd Ring Road, and nearly as far east as the Ximazhuang toll station on the Jingtong Expressway. Within the urban area of Beijing, it occupies 475 square kilometres (183 sq mi), making it the largest district, with Haidian second. As of 2005, Chaoyang had a total population of 3,642,000,[1] making it the most populous in Beijing. The district has jurisdiction over 22 subdistrict offices and 20 area offices.[2] Chaoyang is also home to Silk Street, and many other market areas, shopping malls, and restaurant strips.

Administrative divisions[edit]

Chaoyang is divided into 41 subdistricts, 19 of which carry the "area" (地区) label:[3]

Chaoyang serves as Beijing's diplomatic district. All foreign embassies to China are located in the district except for those of Russia and Luxembourg, which are both in Dongcheng. Chaoyang has three embassy areas in the Sanlitun, Chaoyangmenwai, and Liangmahe neighborhoods.[17]


Chaoyang District is one of the fastest growing districts in the Beijing Metropolitan Area. There are several subway lines running through the district.
