Xiaoshan District

Traditional Chinese 蕭山區
Simplified Chinese 萧山区

Xiaoshan District , 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.

Xiaoshan District has a permanent residential population of 1.511 million people and an immigrant population of about 876,500 people. Most of local residents are Han People, speaking Wu Chinese. It has a history for more than 8000 years which is proved by Kuahuqiao site.[1]

Xiaoshan's economic performance is one of the strongest districts in China. It achieved a GDP of 161.2 billion Yuan in 2012; the per capita GDP even topped at $17,000. 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.
