Overview

Tanjung Tokong, situated in the northeastern part of Penang Island, used to be a fishing village. Its name is derived from the Tua Pek Tong Temple.

A Chinese fishing settlement was established in Tanjong Tokong by Zhang Li after the fall of the Ming Dynasty. He accidentally landed in Penang while attempting to reach Sumatra. This precedes the arrival of Francis Light by a few decades and is believed to be the earliest Chinese settlement on Penang Island. Before urbanization commenced in the 1970s it used to have pristine waters, stretches of white, sandy beaches and estuarine mangroves with a village vastly made of simple wooden houses.

Post urbanization Tanjung Tokong has many modern residential and commercial developments. Commercial properties include Prima Tanjung Business Centre, Wisma Binjul and Precinct 10 (food & beverage complex).
