A walk through Bukit Brown is a walk straight into the pages of history which not only documents our culturally rich past but is home to rich flora and fauna. A jungle right in the middle of the city! Conducted by the very knowledgeable volunteer guides also called Brownies, this is a must do tour. Here lie the graves of... More

Bukit Brown is the one of the largest Chinese cemeteries in Southeast asia, with more than a hundred thousand tombs. Parts of the cemetary are being redeveloped for new roads, and in the future, new housing estate. So it's best to visit soon, before it's all gone. The best way to explore Bukit Brown is to join one of the... More

It was my first tour of Bt Brown, led by Darren and Catherine. It was a very interesting tour as they both took turns to regale us with true life stories of the people who laid there. Though you have to be well prepared for the mozzies by covering up or by insect repellent, I cannot wait to join the... More

This could've been hard to find but I snuck through a forest and stumbled upon the graves and then I found a road with more gravestones next to it. They are building a highway straight through the cemetery and hopefully not everything is removed. It's a huge area by the way.

We went for an introductory guided tour today. It was a marvellous experience. Our guide Darren is a fantastic speaker and knows how to engage audience. It was highly educational and a trip back in history and culture. I would highly recommend it and look forward to going there again.

I love this cemetery. It's unique for me and something you can just drive through. It's easy to do so I'm glad I drove through. It would be spooky to do at night and I don't know if it's even open. But it's a secluded place and you'll want to either drive or take a cab through it (if a... More
