Welcome to Tanjong Bunga's Offical Website
Tanjong Bunga is one of the suburbs of George Town, the capital of Penang. Tanjong Bunga is hidden among lush greenery and rocky landscapes making Tanjong Bunga a good base to discover the island of Penang. You can do this on your own way: by taxi, public transport or even by bicycle.
Several up-market hotels cater for your accommodation needs as you enjoy the pristine and serene surroundings. In Tanjong Bunga, you'll find among others, Copthorne Orchid Hotel, Paradise Sandy Beach Resort and Flamingo by the Beach. While the beach is popular, it is not as frequently visited as Batu Feringgi, making this an ideal getaway if you want a degree of seclusion.
Batu Feringgi's is Penang Island's most popular beach destination for tourists and locals. This long stretch of sandy beach is home to a wide range of resorts, shopping opportunities and water sports. Among some of the renowned hotels includes Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, Golden Sands, ParkRoyal Resort, Bayview Beach Beach Resort, Holiday Inn and the renowned Hard Rock Hotel. The charm and appeal of Batu Feringgi has remained unchanged over the years and still continues to draw in large crowds.
The Meaning of the Mural
By now everybody will have seen the huge mural painted on the wall across from the Tanjong Bunga Hotel. It was not just done because someone thought the wall was ugly and a Welcome would be nice. It is a message with flowers (bunga) to remind the State government that this is where Tanjong Bunga starts, not at Mar Vista !
