Kowloon City District (Chinese: 九龍城區; Cantonese Yale: Gáulùhng sìhng kēui) is one of the 18 districts of Hong Kong. It is located in the city of Kowloon. It had a population of 381,352 in 2001. The district has the third most educated residents while its residents enjoy the highest income in Kowloon.

Kowloon City District is the only district that incorporated into the land of Hong Kong in different stages (Convention of Peking, Convention for the Extension of Hong Kong Territory and the demolition of the Kowloon Walled City)

Kowloon City District is a relatively low density residential area.

Areas include: Ho Man Tin, Hung Hom, Kai Tak Airport, Kowloon Tong, Ma Tau Wai, To Kwa Wan, and Whampoa Garden, and the proper Kowloon City.

Part of the district was the location of the original Kowloon City, see Kowloon Walled City. This is now Walled City Park.

The former airport, Kai Tak International Airport was also located in the district; part of it will be re-developed to be Kai Tak Cruise Terminal. In 1982, the Hong Kong Government decided to divide Hong Kong into 18 administrative districts, and Kowloon City and its neighbouring areas such as Hung Hom now belongs to Kowloon City District.
