Trivia: Where is Rantau Panjang of Henri Fauconnier?

The trivia has closed.

I guess now we know there are various “Rantau Panjang”s other than the famous Rantau Panjang in Kelantan (for Duty Free Shopping)!

Before I announce the result, here is a map of where Rantau Panjang is roughly location. Here are some landmarks:

1. Directly opposite Taman Perumahan Tennamaram was where the centenary event was held on 18 May 2017.

2. The oil mill is marked KKS Tennamaram.

3. Kampung Rantau Panjang is indicated on the lower right side.

4. The road to Rantau Panjang is marked “Jalan Rantau Panjang”.

Google Map it 🙂

From the description of Rantau Panjang, where Henri first planted the oil palm seedlings and built his home “Maison des Palmes“, we know it is at the “distant hills beyond the Selangor River” and it is next to the Tennamaram estate.

Thus Rantau Panjang is still in Bestari Jaya in the district of Kuala Selangor. Perhaps, someday a museum can be built on the original site and this heritage can be preserved.

Thus the closest answer is by Jason Yap who wrote: Bestari Jaya, Kuala Selangor.

Please send me your address to:

I will send you a copy of the Commemorative Souvenir Programme Booklet cancelled with the Bestari Jaya pictorial cancellation.

Thank you all for participating and reading myfdc.

Well, anyone who knows the exact place? Drop me a note. I am sure many would like to know the place.
