Heritage Walk from Botanic Gardens to Bukit Brown

Description
Join Claire and Bianca on a tour starting at the Botanic Gardens MRT from where we'll walk to Jacob Ballas garden carpark (for those who drive, they can join us there). We'll pass by the old Command House along Kheam Hock Road, and into the trail at Bukit Brown, exploring the remnants of a kampung after which we'll cross over to the cemetery. Along the way, we'll share stories of the WWII war heroes and tales of the kampung, and some of Singapore's prominent pioneers and an introduction to Chinese tomb designs. We encourage participants to share their personal stories along the way as well. We'll be walking on paved roads as well as trekking through the jungle so make sure you wear proper outfit for a light jungle trek. There are no bathrooms along the way and no places to buy water, so make sure you bring some snacks and drinks along and visit the bathroom before we start. And apply the mosquito repellant! We'll end at Thomson Road near SLF. Bukit Brown is on the World Monuments Watch List 2014. Find out what makes this a heritage site worth preserving.
