Hunnan District (simplified Chinese: 浑南区; traditional Chinese: 渾南區; pinyin: Húnnán Qū), formerly Dongling District (东陵区; 東陵區; Dōnglíng Qū) until July 2014, is one of nine districts of Shenyang, the capital of Liaoning province, People's Republic of China, and forms part of the eastern and southeastern suburbs. The district contains 12 subdistricts of Shenyang proper, 6 towns, 1 rural township, and 1 ethnic rural township. It borders Shenbei New Area to the north, Sujiatun to the south, Heping to the west, and Shenhe and Dadong to the northwest; it also borders the prefecture-level city of Fushun to the east.

The former name Dongling refers to the Eastern Tomb, or Fuling Tomb, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is in fact two Qing dynasty tombs: of Nurhachi, the first emperor of Qing.

The district is rapidly becoming a developed, high-end residential area. There are two corridors along two major highways, one leading to the Eastern Tomb and Fushun, the other leading to the Shenyang Taoxian International Airport, along which one can see luxury apartments and sleek commercial development.

Hunnan New Area

Hunnan New Area was envisaged in 1988 as one of the National High And New Technology Industry Development Zones in the first batch by the State Council in 1991. Construction began in 1991 and finished in October 2001.[3][4]

The park also includes the following development areas:[5]

  • Shenyang High-tech Industrial Development Zone

Since 2010, Hunnan New Area has been under the same administration as Dongling District, which was renamed Hunnan District in July 2014.[6]
