A ramble through Greater Bukit Brown with Alyssa and Peter (Sun, 13 Aug, 9.00am)

Description

Bukit Brown Cemetery sits within a complex of 4 separate cemeteries: the Ong Clan cemetery - most of which is now exhumed, Bukit Brown Cemetery itself, Lao Sua or the Old Cemetery, and Kopi Sua or the Coffee Cemetery. We refer to them collectively as Greater Bukit Brown.


Join Brownies Alyssa and Peter as we uncover some of the interesting areas in Lao Sua (Greater Bukit Brown). We will check out remnants of a long gone kampong, exploring a few tombs (of course) and sharing one unique tomb which features the Journey to the West story. If we are really quiet and cross fingers, don't get lost - we mighte even spot a local jungle elephant! Truth!

.

No children in prams allowed.
