Tan Chau is a district of An Giang Province in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam. The district capital lies at Tan Chau. It is famous for Tan Chau silk with the famous product Lanh My A which black is dyed by Diospyros mollis's fruit. Tan Chau was formed in 1757. Tan Chau District was the largest province of Chau Doc.

It is located in the Mekong Delta, in the southwestern part of the country, sharing a border with Cambodia to the northwest. An Giang occupies a position in the upper reaches of the Mekong Delta. The Hau Giang and Tien Giang branches of the Mekong are the dominant geographical features of the province. With the exception of the west, most of An Giang is fairly flat, and is criss-crossed by many canals and small rivers. This terrain has led to An Giang being a significant agricultural centre, producing significant quantities of rice.

An Giang first became a province in 1832, having been settled by ethnically Vietnamese migrants moving southwards in search of new land. It is believed that An Giang was once an important centre of the vanished Óc Eo culture, presumably owing to its position on the river. Traditionally, An Giang has been known for its silk industry.
