Suprita Mitter
7 pm Not too many tourists do this, but you can sign up for a guided walk that takes you inside the Bukit Brown Cemetery. It will tell you a lot about Singapore's history and mix of cultures. This public Chinese cemetery, established in the early 20th Century, hosts around 100,000 graves and is the biggest Chinese graveyard outside China. The cemetery is named after its first owner George Henry Brown, who was a ship owner and had arrived in Singapore from Calcutta in the 1840s. The cemetery is home to a variety of bird species and wildlife as well.
