Had the privilege to take a free afternoon walking tour organized by local volunteers during a short visit to Singapore. I was not disappointed. The three-hour tour, with a knowledgeable and passionate guide, allowed us to learn about the 20th-century history of Singapore, and particularly of the Chinese communities, by learning the stories of specific graves and those buried there. The cemetery is a refuge of nature and history, for now. Knowing that Bukit Brown is threatened by encroaching development on all sides only added to the urgency to learn about the space and its history.
Many thanks to Darren (the tour guide) and all who help preserve the legacy of Bukit Brown and the memory of those buried there.
