"Lebuh Acheh, George Town, Penang" (2014) In the 18th century, with Malacca in decline, trades along the straits of Malacca moved northwards to Achech, Nederlands-indie (Indonesia). When Captain Francis Light from the British East India Company established the trading post in Penang, he wanted to create a British trading post that rivals Acheh. To do this, he attrached merchants and traders from all over the world to settle in George Town. As a result, Penang had substantial communities of immigrants from Phuket Thai, China, South India, Arabia, Armenian and Acheh itself. One of the mercant who settled here was Tengku Sheriff Syed Hussain Al-Aidid, a wealthy Achechnese mercant of Arab descent and clan leader at the invitation of Cap. Francis, and the compound where he and his clan lived became Acheh street.
