Xiaoshan

"Xiaoshan" redirects here. For other uses, see Xiaoshan (disambiguation).

Xiaoshan District (simplified Chinese: 萧山区; traditional Chinese: 蕭山區; pinyin: Xiāoshān Qū), a district of the city of Hangzhou, located in Zhejiang province in China. Xiaoshan was formerly a city in its own right, across the Qiantang River from the older parts of Hangzhou, but was absorbed in recent years by its much larger neighbor and made into an administrative district of Hangzhou.

Hangzhou's international airport, Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport, is located here. The area is also at the center of one of China's local real estate booms, as the demand for newer, more upscale housing by China's growing middle and upper classes has led to an explosion in construction of new high-rise residential towers and Western-style condominium developments in Xiaoshan. It is also the site of Hangzhou Xiaoshan Sports Centre.
