Bei, river, c.200 mi (320 km) long, formed by the union of two headstreams in the Nanling Mts., N Guangdong prov., S China. It flows S into the Xi River, E of Guangzhou, to form the Pearl River delta. Its entire course is navigable and was once an important north-south route; a road and railway now follow its valley. The name sometimes appears as Pei.
Negübei was a khan of the Chagatai Khanate (1271-1272?). He was the son of Sarban.

In 1271 Negübei was appointed by Kaidu as head of the Chagatai Khanate. A year after his enthronement, however, he rebelled against his master, possibly in conjunction with the revolts launched by the sons of Alghu and Baraq. Kaidu responded by sending an army against Negübei, and the latter was forced to flee to the east. Soon afterward, he was killed and subsequently replaced by Buqa Temür.
