Chüy (Kyrgyz: Чүй, Russian: Чуй) is a district (Russian: район) in the Chuy Region of Kyrgyzstan. Its population was 11,535 in 2009.[1] It is adjacent to the former regional capital, the city of Tokmok, and is the administrative center of the Chuy District (one of the 8 administrative districts of the Chuy Region),[2] which surrounds Tokmok.

Since Chuy is adjacent to Tokmok, the two settlements together are sometimes informally referred to as the "city of Chuy-Tokmok" (Чуй-Токмок; sometimes, Chuy-Tokmak, Чуй-Токмак).[3]
