Daying County (simplified Chinese: 大英县; traditional Chinese: 大英縣; pinyin: Dàyīng Xiàn) is a county of Sichuan province, China, under the administration of Suining City and in the central part of the Sichuan Basin. In 2002, it had a population of 520,000 residing in an area of 703 km2 (271 sq mi). Daying is remarkable for being the home of the "Chinese Dead Sea", a tourist attraction that is based on a salt lake with 9 times the salinity of the ocean and which constitutes the largest indoor water park in China. The G42 Shanghai–Chengdu Expressway and Dazhou–Chengdu Railway (达成铁路) traverses east-west through the entire length of the county.
