Cui Hao ( , 704?754) was a Chinese poet of the Tang Dynasty in Chinamarker.

Cui Hao was born in Biànzhōu (汴州 present day Kaifengmarker) and passed the imperial examinations in 723. He is known to have traveled extensively as an official, particularly between the years 723-744. He was known for three poetry topic - women, frontier outposts, and natural scenery. Fifteen poems exist on the topic of women and fifteen poems exist on the latter two topics.. His most famous poem is Yellow Crane Towermarker.

His life was initially conventional; along with Wang Wei, he was one of the perfectors of the jintishi form. Later, however, he acquired a reputation for disreputable personal behaviour and passed through several marriages. His later verse is similarly unconstrained.

  2. Wan: 2 - 3. Thirty nine poems are contained in Wan's book
