Digital relief map of Suiyuan province, China

Suiyuan was a province in northwest China, comprising the central portion of Inner Mongolia. An invasion by ethnic Mongolian puppet forces under Japanese control in February 1936 was turned back, but the eastern part of the province was finally overrun by the Japanese in October 1937.

Geographically, the province consisted of part of the upper valley of the Yellow River, in which was found the provincial capital of Paotao, together with the Ordos Desert in the south and the Yin Mountains in the north.

The province was abolished in 1954.
