About Tân Châu

Floating markets of the Mekong delta

Tân Châu is a rural district in the Mekong Delta district of Vietnam; it was founded in the mid-18th century. With a population of about 185,000 people, the district was recently upgraded to the status of a town. It is famous for its high-quality silk, woven in traditional patterns and expertly dyed in bright colors; there is also a special black silk called “Heavenly Beauty,” dyed with mulberries. Another local industry is sedge grass weaving, producing mats and other useful items. Visitors can observe traditional cooking techniques as well.
