Thu Dau Mot Town is the capital of Binh Duong Province which is in the Saigon area of Vietnam. It is north of Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City, which forms its southern border. To its west is Tay Ninh province, and Dong Nai Province is on the east. The province was part of the former Song Be Province until that was disestablished in 1997.

Its districts are Ben Cat, Dau Tieng, Di An, Phu Giao, Tan Uyen, and Thuan An. Ben Cat was the subject of the comment, during the Tet Offensive, "we had to destroy this village to save it."

It is 30km from Ho Chi Minh City, 1,740km from Hanoi, 129km from Tay Ninh and 40km from Dong Nai.
