Bukit Brown Cemetery Tours
Known by locals as Kopi Sua or Coffee Hill, the now abandoned Bukit Brown is home to the largest Chinese graveyard outside of China. The 200-plus acres of this iconic burial ground rank high among travelers’ favorite stops in Singapore because of its impressive tombstones and religious statues. These ancient artifacts are tucked into a picturesque hillside with walking trails and winding roads ideal for whiling away an afternoon. Some call it somber, others peaceful or tranquil—but all agree it’s worth a visit before modern industry—which includes plans for a new subway station—render Bukit Brown obsolete.
