Apart from shopping malls and resorts, Singapore also has an interesting history and cultural heritage. Containing 100,000 tombs, this cemetery is the largest Chinese cemetery outside of China. Don't let the word "cemetery" put you off. Even if you are not interested in tombs, you will find the natural environment of Bukit Brown amazing. People do come to Bukit Brown to do hiking!
For history lovers, Bukit Brown is a must visit. Here you can find many interesting tombs of the early pioneers in Singapore, Chinese revolutionaries..etc. . The decorations of those tombs are quite different from the ones you see in Mainland China: an interesting combination of East and West. Part of the cemetery would be destroyed as the Singapore government decided to build a highway there by 2014. So you better go to see it before it is too late. Joining the weekend tours organised by the local volunteers is the best way to explore this huge cemetery. You can find the info here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/bukitbrown/
