Sungai Bakap, Seberang Perai Selatan (22 August, 2015)
Sungai Bakap (GPS: 5.22617, 100.494), (Traditional Chinese: 威南縣; Simplified Chinese: 威南县; Pinyin: Wēi Nán Xiàn) is a small town in Seberang Perai Selatan. It is located immediately to the south of Valdor.
Sungai Bakap is part of a vast sugar plantation that has now been largely replaced with palm oil. It is still a rural community at the edge of urban development. Like Valdor, it was developed by sugar pioneer Khaw Loh Hup and his son-in-law, Kee Lai Huat, who became a 19th sugar baron.
The grand Chinese-style courtyard mansion of Kee Lai Huat, known as Kee Poh Huat Kongsi, is still standing in the village of Sungai Bakap.
