Tai Ping Shan Street

Tai Ping Shan is the hilly area near Tai Ping Shan Street. In the 1840s, the area was rife with thieves and robbers. After the establishment of a barrack and a police station in the neighbourhood, the law and order was restored. The area was thus called Tai Ping Shan denoting peace. When more and more Chinese residing there, a street lined with houses on both sides was built along the slope of the hill and was named Tai Ping Shan Street. Its narrowness and unevenness can still be seen today.
