Kinta (Chinese: 近打) is one of the ten administrative districts of Perak, Malaysia, and it is divided into two major councils:

According to population growth, the District Council (Majlis Daerah) can be enlarged to Municipal Council (Majlis Perbandaran) and finally to City Council (Majlis Bandaraya). In Malaysia, there are only three cities administered by City Hall, in Kuala Lumpur, Kuching North (Kuching Utara) and Kota Kinabalu. Other cities in the country are administered by City Council (Majlis Bandaraya).

Historically, Kinta district was once famous for its tin, being one of the major tin producers in the 18th century.
