Bukit Brown Cemetery Walk
25 February @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
A walk through Bukit Brown Cemetery promises a rich blend of nature and history. Opened in 1922, Bukit Brown has roughly 100,000 tombs belonging to various Chinese social classes. Chew Joo Chiat, the “King of Katong”, is buried here, just to name one prominent figure. It’s a very peaceful place to take a walk and learn about Singapore’s history.
Expat Living’s Event Manager Susan will meet you at the gate entrance of the cemetery – see the picture below for reference; she will email you exactly how to get there. This walk will take approximately 1.5 hours. Please remember to wear comfortable shoes and clothes – and don’t forget to bring water and mosquito repellent!
Date: 25 February
Place: Bukit Brown Cemetery
Additional things to remember: Be respectful – this is a cemetery, after all. Avoid stepping on tombs and refrain from making too much noise. There aren’t any toilets at Bukit Brown; the closest one is at Botanic Gardens MRT.
To attend this walk, you have to be fully vaccinated. In case of heavy rain, you’ll be informed one hour before if the walk will continue or not, so please remember to put down your mobile number when you register. Spots are limited and it’s a first-come-first-served basis.
