Chang'an Town (Chinese: 长安镇; pinyin: Cháng'ān zhèn) is an industrial town in the south east of the Dongguan prefecture-level city in the Pearl River Delta of Guangdong Province, China. The population of Chang'an was 594,809 at the 2000 Census, making it the most populous town (zhèn) in China at that count.
There are many manufacturing operations which tailor to the needs of the export industry, and as a result, Chang'an is one of the wealthiest districts in all of China. As Dongguan is an odd agglomeration of towns without a central core (multicore), the town is more economically connected to adjacent Shenzhen than the far smaller and less dynamic urban cores of Dongguan.
State Highway 107, Guangshen Expressway G4 and Guangshen Yanjiang Expressway S3 run through the area.
