What To Do in Tanjung Bungah

All Attractions in Tanjung Bungah A-Z

Tanjung Bungah is pretty quiet when compared to its more touristy neighbours, Batu Feringghi, Gurney and Georgetown. It may not have even half as many things to see as Georgetown, but the two main attractions it has – the Floating Mosque and the Toy Museum – are unique and interesting in their own right.

You can’t miss them as you would be passing them by en route to Batu Feringghi – just make sure you don’t forget to stop by and pay them a visit.

Penang Floating Mosque

Masjid Terapung or the Floating Mosque was built in 2004 in a bid to replace an older mosque which was damaged in the year’s major tsunami disaster. Situated along Tanjung Bungah’s stretch of beach, the mosque is an architectural wonder with its Moorish design, seven-storey-high towering minarets and 360-degree panoramic view of the sea. It’s the first mosque in the country to be built on the sea, with pillars and stilts supporting its majestic structure. Covering an area of 1,295sqm, it can accommodate up to 1500 people during prayer times.

  • Opening Hours: N/A, but permission to enter must be obtained from the mosque officials. No shoes are allowed inside the mosque, and all visitors must be decently dressed. Closed during Friday prayers (from 12:00 – 14:30).
  • Address: Jalan Tanjung Bungah, Tanjung Bungah (opposite Mar Vista Condominiums)
