About Us

A Brief Introduction

Ms Chan Mei Yi, General Manager and third generation of Thye Shan Medical Hall, starts by introducing how Thye Shan began in 1955 by her grandfather, the late Mr Chan Chak Poey.

She talks briefly about how the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) industry has evolved and the challenges we faced over the years, and how Thye Shan has changed to what it is today.

Our Beginnings

Thye Shan Medical Hall was founded in 1955 by Chan Chak Poey who had migrated to Singapore from China’s Guangdong province.

Mr Chan was an apprentice in his Father’s TCM Hall when he was growing up in Guangzhou.

In Singapore, after a series of hardships, he finally fulfilled his dream of setting up his own TCM Hall in Chinatown to provide quality medicine and services to all.

What We Do

Thye Shan is in the business of providing quality Traditional Chinese Medicinal (TCM) products and services. With more than 60 years of history, we have ample experience in providing you with only the best quality.

Thye Shan has 3 retail outlets in Singapore (2 in Chinatown and 1 in the prime shopping area of Singapore, Takashimaya at Orchard Road), and wholesales to many other outlets both locally and internationally.
