About Nibong Tebal

Nibong Tebal is the last major township in southern Penang Mainland, close to the border with Kedah and Perak. Universiti Sains Malaysia, or USM, has its campus there. The schools of civil engineering, aerospace engineering, and material and mineral resource engineering are among those located there. On the east side of Nibong Tebal is the Bukit Panchor Industrial Estate. Furthest east, at the border with Kedah, is Bukit Panchor State Park.

The most famous person to come from Nibong Tebal is the late Professor Chin Fung Kee, who designed the first Penang Bridge. Unfortunately he passed away before the bridge was opened to the public.

The Member of Parliament of Nibong Tebal is Tan Tee Beng, son of Gerakan Party founding member Tan Gim Hwa. Tan Tee Beng won the seat under the PKR ticket, but quit the party on 1 March to become an independent MP. His resignation came in the wake of disciplinary action against him from within his party for criticising the Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.
