Duodao[2] District (simplified Chinese: 掇刀; traditional Chinese: 掇刀; pinyin: Duōdāo Qū) is a district of the city of Jingmen, Hubei, People's Republic of China.

On March 17, 2001, Hechang Township, Macheng Town, Tuanlinpu Town, Duodaoshi Subdistrict and Baimiao Subdistrict, originally part of Dongbao District, were made into Duodao District.[1]

Administrative divisions

Economy

Once an array of vegetation and fields, Duodao has developed rapidly over recent years. Apartment buildings and businesses have quickly cropped up and Duodao is soon to be home to Jingmen's first Walmart store.

Duodao is home to some notable schools such as Duodaoshi Middle School (Chinese: 掇刀石中学), Jingmen Special Education School for children with special needs, The Medical School of Jingchu University of Technology (Chinese: 医学院), and Shilipai Primary School (Chinese: 十里牌小学)
