Ang Soon Tong (Chinese: 洪顺堂; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: âng sūn tn̂g) is a secret society based in Singapore and Malaysia. According to a former police officer, the society was active as early as the 1950s, mainly in the Sembawang area.[1] In 1998, a 19-year-old youth was arrested for setting up a website dedicated to the society.[2]

As recently as 2008, Ang Soon Tong is still active, with one of its members sentenced to reformative probation that year for clashing with members of another secret society.[3]
