Penang Cantonese People is the second largest dialect group in Penang after the Penang Hokkiens. In the earliest days, they live in the area along King Street, where you can find many of their temples and district associations.

By the turn of the 20th century, the Cantonese have also moved to settle in large numbers in the areas to the west of Carnarvon Street, including Kimberley Street, Kuala Kangsar Road and Cintra Street.

The Larut Wars on the second half of the 19th century have brought mixed blessings to the Cantonese. Ejected from some of their properties in their traditional enclave at King Street, they were resettled at Rope Walk and the western part of Chulia Street, where you can find a few Cantonese district associations. Their arrival in Chulia Street coincides with the waning influence of the South Indians in that area.
