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.
Map of Meixian, Meizhou, Guangdong, 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.
Meixian has administrative jurisdiction over one subdistrict and 18 towns.
With a majority Hakka population, Meixian, along with Dabu County, is known as the home of Standard Hakka.
