68 Amoy Street’s previous owners include Chia Keng Beng in the 1890s, one of the first private property developers in Singapore, and Oei Bok Sien in 1919, who was in the shipping business and owned multiple ships and steamers.
Amoy Street is named after a port in the Fujian Province, China. It is a Hokkien-dominated area that once catered to sailors and the sea trade.
Early settlers from China disembarked and grew their roots in an area encompassing the present Amoy Street. In those days, Amoy Street was a busy commercial hub.
Amoy Street is also one of the old streets developed during the 1830s defining Chinatown under Stamford Raffles’ 1822 Plan.
Amoy Street was so named to reflect the connection between local community and the Chinese port of the same name from where most of the earliest settlers set out on their journey for a better tomorrow.
Today, Amoy Street is filled with offices, well-known restaurants and cocktail bars. The street is famous among tourists for its large wall murals.
Amoy Street is surrounded by quaint and quiet green parks including Telok Ayer Green, Ann Siang Hill Park, and Telok Ayer Park that hold significant importance in Singapore’s history.
