Amoy Street starts at its junction with Telok Ayer Street and McCallum Street and ends with its junction with Pekin Street, now a pedestrian mall. It is intersected by Boon Tat Street and Cross Street.
During the British colonial era, Amoy Street was noted for its opium smoking dens. The Chinese name for the street is based on landmarks in the area: it is called ma cho keng au(妈祖宫后) in Hokkien (rear of the Ma Cho Temple), or kun yam miu hau kai in Cantonese (behind the Kun Yam temple), referring to the Thian Hock Keng Temple on Telok Ayer Street where both goddesses were worshipped.

Amoy Street was also known as ha mun kai in Cantonese, ha mun being the Cantonese pronunciation of the characters representing the name of the place Amoy.

The street was also known colloquially as Free School Street or ghi oh khau (义学口front of the school) because the Cui Ying School was built here in 1854. It was in one of the shophouses here (Number 70) that the first Anglo-Chinese School was started on 1 March 1886. The shophouse has since been marked as a historic site.
