Tai Ping Shan Street

This hilly area of Hong Kong was a favourite haunt of thieves and robbers in the 1840s, but law and order was restored when a police station and barracks were built in the neighbourhood, which was then called Tai Ping Shan, denoting peace. As more and more Chinese moved into the area, a street lined with houses on both sides sprung up along the slope of the hill: Tai Ping Shan Street remains as steep and narrow as it was in those days.
