Description

Discover French footprints in Penang

French people have been present in Penang since the very beginnings of the city. From Church Street and Bishop Street (which owe their names to a French church and a French bishop!), to great schools such as Convent Light Street or the Saint Xavier Institution, and to villages and plantations on the Peninsular side of Penang – Kampung Val d’Or, Kampung Alma or the Malakoff Plantations – there is a lot of French heritage in Penang.

Penang was once nicknamed “The Montpellier of the Indies” – a reference to the good climate of Penang, comparable to the city in Southern France!
