Overview

Sungai Ara is a township located in the Southeast of Penang Island. From Malay the name translates to “Fig River”. Prior to development, it was a rural agricultural land dominated by vegetable farming. It gets its name from Sungai Ara river flowing east through the area which joins with Sungai Relau to form the larger Sungai Keluang which eventually opens on to the sea.
