19 Nov (Sat): Fort Canning Spice Trail guided walk

"Revisiting History, Embracing Nature"
Join us as we guide you along The Fort Canning Spice Trail and discover the fascinating world of spices.

This trail sits on the site of Singapore’s first experimental and botanical   garden. A small replica of the 19ha garden, it now has a collection of   more than a hundred species of plants - spice, herbs, medicinal,   economical and ornamentals. Nutmeg (Myristica fragrans) and Clove   (Syzygium aromaticum) trees, which were planted extensively in the first   garden, can be found there as well.

Other attractions along  this  trail also includes the Archaeological Dig, which showcases the  actual  excavation site, the only such exhibition in modern Singapore  and  Keramat, believed to be a tomb of Singapore’s last king, Sultan  Iskandar  Syah.

Whether it is botanical or historical, learning about our history is just a walk in the park.

Walk   is moderately easy but will involve walking up slopes and steps so do   come dressed comfortably. The tour lasts two and a half hours. This  walk  is held every last Saturday of the month.

You may also opt  for  the Heritage on the Hill tour, which will bring you around the park  and  discover the events that have changed and shaped the face of Fort   Canning over the years.
