Yangon Region Hluttaw (Burmese: ရန်ကုန်တိုင်းဒေသကြီးလွှတ်တော်) is the legislature of the Burmese region of Yangon Region. It is a unicameral body, consisting of 123 members, including 92 elected members and 31 military representatives. As of February 2016, the Hluttaw was led by speaker Tin Maung Tun of the National League for Democracy (NLD).

The regional legislature convenes at the Yangon Region Hluttaw building on Pyay Road in Dagon Township. The building formerly housed the national parliament.

In 2013, the Yangon Region Hluttaw adopted the 2013 Yangon City Municipal Law, which holds the Yangon City Development Committee and the Yangon city mayor accountable to the legislature, including its budgetary power.

Following the general elections in 2015, the Yangon Region Hluttaw saw a sweep towards the National League for Democracy, winning all but four of the seat contested in the election.
