Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web
Stroll through hundreds of years of history at Bukit Brown Cemetery, a public Chinese cemetery--the biggest outside of China. It first opened in 1922, and since then has become the final resting spot for more than 1,000,000 people. Though eventually closed and essentially abandoned, the cemetery remains in existence. Follow a paved path on a journey past humble graves and delicate statues. The abandoned cemetery is brought back to life by the overgrown jungle and healthy bird and monkey population.
