About Tanjungbalai

Tanjungbalai (Indonesian: Kota Tanjungbalai), formerly known as Tanjungbalai-Asahan is a city in North Sumatra province, Indonesia, on the estuary of the Asahan River. It has an area of 107.8 sqkm and the sixth largest kota (urban) population in North Sumatra with 154,426 inhabitants in the 2010 census, and 155,782 at the 2015 Census. The town has a ferry terminal with services to Port Klang, Malaysia, and the city-island of Singapore.
