Tanjungbalai (Indonesian: Kota Tanjungbalai), formerly Tanjungbalai-Asahan is a city in North Sumatra province, Indonesia, on the estuary of the Asahan River. It has an area of 58 square kilometres (22 sq mi) and the 5th largest kota population in North Sumatra with 154,426 inhabitants in the 2010 census.[1] The town has a ferry terminal with services to Port Klang, Malaysia, and the city-island of Singapore. It was formerly a district of Asahan Regency until it was elevated to city status, but the tag "Asahan" is still used to distinguish it from the port of the same name on Great Karimun island.
