Penang is the second smallest Malaysian state in area after Perlis, and the eighth most populous. The name “Penang” comes from the modern Malay name Pulau Pinang, which means “island of the areca nut palm” (Areca catechu, family Palmae). The name Penang may refer either to the island of Penang (Pulau Pinang) or the state of Penang (Negeri Pulau Pinang).
