Amoy Lane, George Town (29 September, 2012)



Amoy Lane (GPS: 5.42173, 100.32848) or Lorong Amoy is a small lane in the old quarters of George Town. It starts at Argyll Road and ends as a no-through-road after its intersection with Hutton Lane.

Amoy Lane was named after the city of Xiamen, in Fujian Province, China, which is pronounced Amoy by the Europeans, derived from the local Minnan (Hokkien) pronunciation of Xiamen, Au Mooi.

Amoy was one of the main ports of departure for early Hokkien immigrants to the Malay peninsula. However the Amoy Hokkien dialect is closely related to that spoken in Klang, Malacca and Singapore, Penang Hokkien is derived from the Hokkien from Zhangzhou, also in Fujian Province.
