Neiwan (內灣) is a city in Hsinchu County.

Although a prosperous community in the 60s, the economy of Neiwan suffered greatly with the closure of the local mines and the town languished as an isolated backwater for around thirty years. Then in the early 2000s, the town's preserved historic buildings and traditional culture suddenly began to be in vogue with city dwellers, and this has resulted in the town gaining a certain prominence as a tourist destination in recent years.
