1 Striking Heritage Site In Singapore
Very few countries have been able to rise from a third world country to becoming a first world country, and with a range of important and beautifully wonderful natural, historic, and cultural heritages. The most visible of these countries is Singapore.
Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, is an island city-state located in the maritime Southeast Asia. It is known variously as the “Garden City”, due to its many parks and tree-lined streets. This has entered the country in the list of interestingly beautiful countries to visit for tourism, as situated at the heart of the City of Singapore is the magical site, the Singapore Botanic Gardens. The perfect and enduring beauty of these Gardens, alongside the paintings and buildings that clearly demonstrate the evolution of the Botanic Gardens since its establishment in 1859, has made this lovely country a most visit for all people, especially the nature enthusiasts.
So many other wonderfully interesting sites and cultures exist in Singapore. From the communal and enterprising ‘Hawker Culture’ that brings people of races to dine together in the city’s Hawker Centre, to the magnificent cultural and Religious sites that include the National Gallery Singapore, Sultan Mosque, ArtScience Museum, Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, Thian Hock Keng temple, Sri Mariamman Temple, and many more. And, you will be the one telling the more, once you are in this lovely country.
Singapore Botanic Gardens
The Singapore Botanic Gardens is situated at the heart of the city of Singapore and demonstrates the evolution of a British tropical colonial botanic garden from a ‘Pleasure Garden’ in the English Landscape Style, to a colonial Economic Garden with facilities for horticultural and botanical research, to a modern and world-class botanic garden, scientific institution and place of conservation, recreation and education. The Singapore Botanic Gardens is a well-defined cultural landscape which includes a rich variety of historic landscape features, plantings and buildings that clearly demonstrate the evolution of the Botanic Gardens since its establishment in 1859. Through its well-preserved landscape design and continuity of purpose, the Singapore Botanic Gardens is an outstanding example of a British tropical botanic garden which has also played a key role in advances in scientific knowledge, particularly in the fields of tropical botany and horticulture, including the development of plantation rubber.
