This is a late afternoon walk introducing you to Singapore's first Chinese Municipal Cemetery. In this walk, you'll enjoy the lovely greenery and serene environment, see some of Singapore's wildlife, visit some of our forefathers and learn more about the special heritage aspects of Bukit Brown.

Join us to find out why we have to save this historical and natural treasure trove!
