Chaoyang District (simplified Chinese: 朝阳区; traditional Chinese: 朝陽區; pinyin: cháoyángqū) is a core district of Beijing. It borders the districts of Shunyi to the northeast, Tongzhou to the east and southeast, Daxing to the south, Fengtai to the southwest, Dongcheng, Xicheng and Haidian to the west, and Changping to the northwest.

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 central city's largest district, with Haidian second. As of 2005, Chaoyang had a total population of 3,642,000,[1] making it the most populous district 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.
