Beach Road, SingaporeBeach Road, Singapore (10 July, 2011)


Beach Road is a major road in Singapore. It is within the Kallang Planning Area and Downtown Core. It runs from northeast to southwest. It starts at Crawford Street in the northeast and ends at Stamford Road in the southwest.

Beach Road has appeared on the 1836 Map of Singapore drawn by imminent local architect George Coleman. At that time, it lives to its name of being a beach-side road. It was known as "Sio1 Pho1 Hai1 Kni2" (written in Hokkien Taiji Romanisation), meaning "Small Town Beach." The term "Sio1 Pho1" meaning "Small Town" refers to the part of Singapore north of the Stamford Road, while south of it was known as "Tua Poh" or "Big Town".

Another vernacular name for it was "Thik1 Pa1sat3 Khau4" , meaning "Facing the Iron Market". This second name refers to the Clyde Terrace Market, a cast-iron market building that once stood where the Gateway Building is now located.

In Stamford Raffles' 1822 Town Plan, he put aside Beach Road for the residences of the Europeans. By 1825, there were 20 opulent European bungalows along the road, earning it yet another Hokkien nickname, "Jee33 Cap3 Keng1" , meaning "Twenty Houses".
