What you'll do
Join me for a delightful stroll through the tranquil surroundings of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Learn about its heritage trees and iconic structures, and end with a little picnic of Ginger Tea and Cake in the heart of the Gardens. Dating back to 1859, Singapore's only UNESCO World Heritage Site is also a "Garden in the City", and houses more than 10,000 species of flora. As we take a walk through the gardens, understand the evolution of this British tropical colonial botanic garden into a iconic institution for research & education, and appreciate its cultural landscape & significance to the average Singaporean family. We will drop by the Heritage Museum, hunt for the famous Tembusu heritage tree, pose for photos at the immaculate Black-and-White colonial bungalow, spot the swans and feed the fish at the serene Swan Lake, and perhaps discover a rubber seed just like back in the days of Henry Ridley. Understand the uses of Ginger and Spices in the Ginger Garden, and end our journey with a little picnic of Ginger Tea and Cake (flavour depending on availability!) as we soak in the subtle beauty of Garden at the Symphony Stage. Fancy a cuppa tea?
Born and raised in Singapore, I am still fascinated by the different facets of this country I call home. Join me as I share the 'under-explored' charm of this city, beyond the usual tourist sites and purpose-built entertainment centres, and discover the soul of Singapore. Besides being a qualified Licensed Guide, I am also a volunteer with NParks (National Park), so if you are looking for something Fun & insightful, come along too!
