Sungai Udang (GPS: 5.16545, 100.42779) is a Chinese fishing village in Nibong Tebal, Penang. Located near the mouth of Sungai Kerian, the village was named after tributary streams that have since been canalised for irrigation and fish breeding.

The village of Sungai Udang comprises Sungai Udang Besar and Sungai Udang Kecil. These refer to two separate streams in the area, but they in turn give them names to the settlements. The area is served by a single country road, State Route P167, which connects it to Nibong Tebal.

To check erosion, the villagers of Sungai Udang embarked on a mangrove replanting programme since 2004. Young seedlings and plants are replanted in the Sungai Udang Mangrove Forest. The forest is an important breeding ground for fish. It also is a nesting place for many species of birds.

During the evening, it is possible to hire a boat into the mangrove to watch fireflies. Due to the limited development of the area, the mangrove trees of Sungai Udang still sustains a dense concentration of fireflies.
