Hulunbuir (Mongolian:; Chinese: 呼伦贝尔; Pinyin: Hūlúnbèi'ěr) is a region that is governed as a prefecture-level city in northeastern Inner Mongolia, in the People's Republic of China.The name of the city is a combination of the names of the two sister lakes-the hulun lake and the buir lake in the region. Its administrative center is located at Hailar District, its largest urban area. Until October 10, 2001, Hulun Buir was administered as a League.

Hulun Buir is recognized as the largest city in the world by area, although the actual urban agglomeration is just a very small part of the region, and the average population density of the area is very low. Major scenic features are the high steppes of the Hulun Buir grasslands, the Hulun and Buir lakes (the latter partially in Mongolia), and the Khingan range. Hulun Buir borders Russia, Mongolia, Heilongjiang province and Hinggan League. Historically, the eastern part of the area is also known as Barga.

Hulunbuir is a prefecture-level city in northeast Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, North China. It spans an area of 264,000 square kilometers (101931 square miles), and has a population of 2.7 million. Hailaer District is the administrative center. Hulunbuir adjoins Heilongjiang Province in the east, and shares borders with Outer Mongolia to the west, Russia to the north by the Ergun River.

The famous Hulunbuir Grassland, with a total area of 93,000 square kilometers (35,908 square miles), is one of the largest and best-preserved grasslands in the world. The endless grassland is like a giant carpet of green, dotted with white yurts, herds of cattle and sheep, and winding rivers and lakes. Visitors can try many activities. They can roam around riding horses, camels or grassland carts. Or they can paddle a boat and angle on the lakes, or hunt in a nearby forest. Here, you will nor resist the authentic foods of the herdsmen, such as roasted lambs, mutton hotpots, fish feasts, as well as many dairy products.
