Kaizhou District (Chinese: 开州区), formerly known as Kai County or Kaixian (Chinese: 开县) is a district under the jurisdiction of Chongqing Municipality, in southwestern China, bordering Sichuan province to the west. It has an area of 3,959 square km. As of the end of 2009, it had a population of 1.62 million. It is located 330 kilometers from the urban centre of Chongqing proper.

The county has a history dating back some 1800 years.

In 1373, during the Ming Dynasty, it adopted the name Kaizhou.

Until 2004 the county was one of the poorest in the municipality, home to some 10% of Chongqing municipality residents that lived in poverty. The government has attempted to remedy this in recent years.[1]
