Clan Legacies & Revolutionaries Trail by Penang Hidden Gems explores the history and heritage of the Big 5 clans (or Kongsi) in Penang that became the backbone of the Penang Hokkien community in the olden days.

Participants will learn about how the Hokkien merchants and traders of the 17th century set up the Kongsi network in Penang, their monopoly on revenue farming, and what made the infamous Penang Riot 1867 break.

Participants will also learn how the turmoil of the Qing Dynasty in China drove the Southern Chinese to Nanyang, starting a life as a new Chinese migrant in the Kongsi. The trail will end with learning how Armenian street played a role in the 1911 Chinese Revolution–or the fall of the mighty Qing Dynasty in China–a major event in world history.
