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!

We will be covering about one third of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, starting from Tanglin Gate which is really a stone's throw away from Orchard Road. Our experience will cover the Historical Landmarks and sites that brought the Gardens to this prestigious title on the UNESCO World Heritage list and end off with a sit down picnic where you can enjoy the rest of the Gardens or head off for more!
