Yingtan ( ) is a prefecture-level city in the east part of China's Jiangxi province. It borders Fujian province to the east. Its location next to Fujian and its proximity to Zhejiang, have made it a strategically important city for centuries. Today, it continues to be a major rail transport hub.

Near the city of Yingtan is the resort area Longhushan (龙虎山; Lónghǔ Shān) which purports to be the birthplace of Taoism (道教) and hence has great symbolic value to Taoists. The region has many interesting temples, cave complexes, mountains and villages.
