Things to See and Do at Tanjung Bungah (Penang, Malaysia)

I searched everything you need to know about Tanjung Bungah and I was led to website. Here are the information I gathered:

*Literally meaning 'Flower Cape', Tanjung Bungah is a seaside suburb located between Gurney and Batu Ferringhi, about a half hour's drive from Georgetown. 

*Originally a sleepy fishing village, it has risen in popularity over the years to become one of Penang's most popular destinations. 

*Water sports are most popular in Tanjung Bungah, with Penang Water Sports Centre based here. You can ride a jet-ski, do parasailing, canoeing and banana boat riding for a reasonable price.  

*Tanjung Bungah is pretty quiet compared to its more touristy neighbors, Batu Ferringhi, Gurney and Georgetown. 

Apart from its well-known sandy beaches, Tanjung Bungah's main attractions includes:


*Built amongst its spectacular natural landscape are world-class hotels and resorts, offering guests the utmost comfort and luxury in an ideallic location.

Apart from the popular water sports, you can also do horseback riding 

or opt for things to do for free like building sand castles,

picking sea shells,

flying a kite,

go for a swim,

chase the waves,

abandon your flipflops and go for a beach walk barefooted,

watch the sun go down,

chillax with your friends,

marvel at the hidden beauty of rusty fishing boats,

jump to your hearts' content,

do instant photoshoot fall in love all over again,

or just simply watch the beautiful world go by.
