Meixian (simplified Chinese: 梅县; traditional Chinese: 梅縣; pinyin: méi xiàn; literally: "Plum County"), formerly Meihsien, is a district of Meizhou City, in northeastern Guangdong Province, China.

Meixian almost completely surrounds Meizhou's central urban Meijiang District. This is due to the old urban core of Meixian becoming separated from the bulk of the county in the territorial reorganisations following the 1949 establishment of the People's Republic of China, when it was given equal status.
