Dato' Tan Lian Hoe (simplified Chinese: 陈莲花; traditional Chinese: 陳蓮花; pinyin: Chén Lián Huā; born 14 November 1958) is a Malaysian politician. She was a member of the Parliament of Malaysia from 2004 to 2013. She was a member of the Malaysian People's Movement Party (Gerakan) party in the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition.

Tan was elected to the Gerik seat in the 2008 election, having served from 2004 as the member of Parliament for Bukit Gantang earlier.[1] In October 2008, Tan was rebuked by the then Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi[2] for having criticised the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), the leading party in the Barisan Nasional government, for what she saw as race-based politics.[3]

In the 2013 election, she contested the seat of Taiping,[4] but was defeated by Nga Kor Ming of the Democratic Action Party (DAP).[5]
