Established in 1859 by an agri-horticultural society, the Singapore Botanic Gardens (SBG) has been an important part in the cultural and economic history of Singapore. As the birth place of the region’s rubber and orchid industries, SBG played an integral historical role in the development of the economy of the Southeast Asian region. A walk through the Gardens will evoke memories of bygone days where ladies strolled through the Gardens with their parasols and long skirts.
Highlights of this heritage tour include a tour of the SBG Heritage Museum. The museum features interactive exhibits and panels that share little known facts of the Gardens’ rich heritage, as well as rare artefacts including botanical books, paintings, and some of the Gardens’ historical landmarks.
Participants will be enthralled and enriched by the rich heritage of the Gardens, following its nomination to UNESCO as Singapore’s first World Heritage Site.
