Penang was discovered by Chinese merchants in the 15th century; it was then when the island was first charted. This was later changed to Penang, which in Malaysia's native language means areca nut. Under the command of admiral Cheng Ho China became an important trading partner in Penang. Ping-Lang-Seu is the name he gave the island. The Chinese were especially interested in goods and materials. In exchange the Chinese brought their own goods and techniques to Penang and the rest of the Malaysian peninsula.
