Neighbourhood Overview

Tanjung Bungah

Penang, Malaysia

PropSocial's Review





Tanjung Bungah is a neighbourhood situated along the northern coastline of Penang. Translated from Malay as "flower cape", the area was originally occupied by fishermen. It began to undergo development particularly during the 1980s, as the development of the state capital spread to nearby neighbourhoods and towns.

Other than being a well-loved destination for holiday-makers, Tanjung Bungah is also home to many luxury properties, be it high-rise or landed. The residential units serve the purposes of both permanent and vacation homes. Despite its popularity as a residential area for those working (or studying) in Georgetown and the northern side of Penang, the neighbourhood remains relatively peaceful, for example compared to nearby seaside town Batu Feringghi.

There are several attractions in Tanjung Bungah – the Penang Toy Museum, a weekly night market and the Tanjung Bungah Floating Mosque, for example. The Penang Water Sports Centre, Penang Swimming Club and Penang Chinese Swimming Club provide a variety of facilities for sports like kayaking, boating, swimming, tennis, squash, table tennis and badminton.

Amenities within the vicinity include the massive Tanjung Bungah wet market, a bus terminal where public buses depart and arrive, and the Penang Adventist Hospital. Families with school-age children will find the proximity of schools such as SK Tanjung Bungah, SMK Tanjung Bungah, SJK (C) Poay Wah, SK Pendidikan Khas Persekutuan and the Dalat International School extremely appealing.

In 1999, Tanjung Bungah saw yet another influx of students when a permanent campus of the Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TARC) was built in the suburb. It currently offers no less than 20 courses at both diploma and degree levels.

There is also no lack of food and beverage outlets, shopping complexes and recreation or entertainment facilities in and around the neighbourhood, with places like Island Plaza, the Gurney area – encompassing Gurney Drive Food Court, Gurney Promenade, Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon – and Straits Quay, which is in the nearby neighbourhood of Seri Tanjung Pinang.

Transportation, both private and public, is convenient. Other than the aforementioned bus terminal, the public buses that pass by main roads in Tanjung Bungah are busses number 101, 102, 103 and 104. Furthermore, the main road of the neighbourhood was upgraded and widened in the recent years, smoothening the flow of traffic through the area.
