Description:
Cijin District (; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Kî-tin-khu) is a district of Kaohsiung City, Taiwan, covering the entire Cijin Island. Most of its residents are employed by the shipping industry. There is a park on the north western shore. The "Cross Harbor Tunnel" () connects the Cijin Island at the southern tip to the rest of Kaohsiung on the mainland Taiwan. Cijin District is also accessible by two ferries at northern top and middle of the island. See Cijin–Gushan Ferry.

Cijin Island was once connected to the mainland at the southern tip, but in 1975, this link was severed to create a second entry point to the Port of Kaohsiung.

Two islands in the South China Sea are administered by Kaohsiung City as parts of Qijin District:
