Peaceful, a bit wild

Beautiful piece of history that is slowly reverting back to jungle. I saw more wildlife here than I did at the botanical gardens. The monkeys are good value.

This was a bit hard to find (seriously just walked into the neighborhood and someone pointed us to a small footpath through the trees). It was interesting to walk around, but probably would have been more valuable if we knew more about it. Not really maintained, but I guess that's the appeal. Hard to get in/out of, but free and...

This fabulous tour is like a mini social and historical tour of Singapore. It gives you a great understanding of Chinese culture, the forces that shaped modern Singapore plus fantastic insights into Chinese history and mythology. We scrambled through the bush, to see some recently discovered tombs, and how they'd been uncovered, and who they'd belonged to. The beautiful tombs... More

The nature, the heritage, plus the general ambience of the place, is still present despite the bulldozers. A must-see.

Joined a guided tour with the Bukit Brown volunteers from bukitbrown.com and it really was an enriching experience to hear the stories of those buried there, the legacy of pioneers and British colonial rule and the various flora and fauna found in the area. Shame that this is now making way for a highway and future housing development for the... More

It was a recent walk that I took and realized that that was so much more than just a Chinese Municipal cemetry. Theere were tombs of great man that were involved in the resistance work before the occupation of Singapore. Member of the New China revolution overseas support group. The tombstine told a story and the layout was indeed an... More

Having lived in Singapore for about 8 years now I'm embarrassed to say that today was my first visit to Bukit Brown Cemetery. Unfortunately I'm a little late to see it at its best as a large chunk of the cemetery has now been turned into a construction site, which somewhat detracts from the peace and quiet of the surroundings....

I loved this place but you must combine with Reflections the old Malay house which tells you the history of the Malay company that held up against the onslaught of the Japanese invasion. Watch the 2 films and talk to the old men who look after the place

This old cemetery was an amazing place to run or stroll through, and pay your respects. It is one of the few cemeteries in Singapore, and defintiely has character.

We went in an excellent Battlefield tour around and near Bukit Brown run by the group All Things Bukit Brown (check their Facebook page for this and other tours) and the excellent guide and Archaeologist Jon Cooper. Jon bought the history and drama of the final days and battles prior to the fall of Singapore alive and showed us the... More
