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.

If you don't have anywhere anti go in Singapore to go for spookyness, this is the place. But make sure you go there at night and explore every inch of the cemetery. It's sad that such a remarkable plac going to die soon as there are construction undergoing. Good for a walk or jogging in day time. Night is for... More

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

I was quite surprised to see so many people in Bukit Brown cemetery today (on my last visit I saw hardly anyone). But apparently it's tomb sweeping season, and as such the cemetery was packed. Still very interesting but I think I prefer the solitude when there aren't many other visitors.

I started from the polo club end of the trail. It was a wonderful experience - very unlike the usual singapore. It took about an hour to hike to adam road. Make sure u have sufficient water and a 4g phone with location turned on. We almost missed the cemetry part of the trail by continuing on to gymkhana rd

Yes, it does feel strange to rate a cemetery, but since I found that it's been rated, and I've been there too, then why not add to it? Bukit Brown shows a small part of Singapore history. In a small country with very limited space, new cemeteries are small and packed. This cemetery is old. It is quiet, a nice... More
