Chenggong District (Chinese: 呈贡区; pinyin: Chénggòng Qū) is a city district under the jurisdiction of Kunming, Yunnan, China. Chenggong, formerly a county and situated on east bank of the Dian Lake, had its status changed to a district of Kunming in 2011.

Chenggong is the chief zone for the expansion of the city of Kunming, almost a 20 minute drive away. It is the site of the new Kunming City Hall, and new campuses for Yunnan University and Yunnan Normal University.

As of 2012, much of the newly constructed housing in Chenggong is still unoccupied, and it is reportedly one of the largest ghost towns in Asia,[1] in a similar situation to Ordos City and the New South China Mall. However, some commentators expect it to become occupied over the next few years, as central Kunming is overcrowded. Some Government departments are to move to Chenggong in 2012,[2] and a subway line to the city center opened in 2013.
