Things about Bayan Lepas, Penang that You Should Know
Bayan Lepas is within George Town, in the Malaysian state of Penang. It is based in Southwest Penang Island District, around the southeastern tip of Penang Island.
The township was founded in the 19th century and is now the home of eponymous Free Industrial Zone and Penang International Airport. Some multinational companies dealing with electronic and engineering firms have set their plants in the town. Some of the companies are Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Motorola, Bosch, and Intel.
Bayan Lepas is believed to have been named after one rich Sumatran family that significantly contributed to the growth of the town. Upon coming ashore, the family’s pet parakeet escaped, explaining the name Bayan Lepas, meaning ‘escaped parakeet’ in Malay.
The mukim of Bayan Lepas includes Bayan Lepas and neighborhoods such as Sungai Ara, Batu Maung, and Bayan Baru.
