Chuanhui District (simplified Chinese: 川汇区; traditional Chinese: 川匯區; pinyin: Chuānhuì Qū; literally: "river intersection") is a district of the city of Zhoukou, Henan province, China. It lies at the intersection of the Ying River, Sha River and Jialu River. The name "Chuanhui" means that three rivers come across. From 17th century to 19th century, it was an important port in China's Inland Waterway System, connecting Huai River and Yellow River. Now it is the place where the government of Zhoukou City locates.
