Tangkak

Tangkak is located in the north-western corner of the state of Johore, Malaysia. It is a small town with a population of about 50,000 people and it is one of the most important towns in Johore.

The original name for this town was "Tanjung", but when it was upgraded to a district in 1982, its name was changed to Tangkak. Tangkak has many tourist attractions such as Tanjung Bidara Beach Resort and Tanjung Bunut Beach Resort.

In 1871, Sultan Abu Bakar opened up a tin mine in Tangkak and this led to an influx of Chinese immigrants who were employed as miners. The town became a hub for tin mining and attracted many migrants from China.
