Hopea chinensis (Dipterocarpaceae) is a rare and critically endangered species. Here, we first report and characterize its complete chloroplast genome sequence based on Illumina paired-end sequencing data. The complete plastid genome was 152,054 bp, which contained inverted repeats (IR) of 21,702 bp separated by a large single-copy (LSC) and a small single-copy (SSC) of 20,462 bp and 88,188 bp, respectively. The cpDNA contains 129 genes, comprising 83 protein-coding genes, 38 tRNA genes, and 8 rRNA genes. The overall GC content of the plastome is 37.4%. The phylogenetic analysis of 18 selected chloroplast genomes demonstrated that H. chinensis was close to the species Parashorea macrophylla.
