Kuytun or Kuitun ( ; pinyin: Kuítún) is a county-level city with about 285,000 residents (2000 census) in Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture, Xinjiang. Kuitun is located between Wusu and Shihezi on the railway from Urumqi to Kazakhstan, close to a desert.

The city was historically associated with the Seventh Agricultural Division of Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, which had run it until 1975, and still continues to administer the county-level city's Tianbei New District.

Local industries include food processing and textile industries, as well as Kuitun Power Plant.
