Location - about seri manjung

With a total population of about 247,603, the rapid population boom in Manjung, or “Dingding” as it was formerly known, has contributed to the intense development of the district, which was once part of the British Colony. The unprecedented demand for new residential and commercial infrastructure to be built has resulted in the birth of Bandar Seri Manjung, the district’s principal urban centre.

The district is well known for its Pangkor Island, a major attraction in Perak and the home of the Royal Malaysian Navy (TLDM) Lumut Naval Base and dockyard.

Designated as the Economic Exclusive Zone, Manjung has been a location of choice for any leading national and multinational organizations to set up their business operations, thus creating an expatriate community whom have made this district their home.
