The Last Village

Book Now

Intersections at the Cemetery

Let our personality take you through a journey across time — learn the stories behind deaths and burials of a time when Singapore was a colony, discover diaries and recollections of the war, and discuss the contributions of Singapore's pioneers, and how fascinating parts of the nation's history was charted.

At A Mystical Spot

Gather at a secret mystical spot, located in one of the now-defunct Chinese Kampong sites within the cemetery forest. Discover how the living lived and continues to live among the dead, the effects that modern life and people have had on the spot, and a creative take on how we continue to keep alive the stories of those who came before us.

Culture, Art and Architecture

Discover more on the salvation of the iconic Bukit Brown Cemetery gates, the creation of ad hoc shrines, and the material culture of Bukit Brown — you might even draw a surprising link or two back to European history by understanding the use of decorative elements and materials.

The Last Village

Duration: 3 – 3.5 hours

Cost: S$360 (up to 5 pax)

In contrast to futuristic Singapore, there’s a place that is untouched and has resisted modern development – Kampong Lorong Buangkok. In Malay, “kampong” means village, home to 29 families that are still keeping the “Kampong Spirit” alive. As you travel back in time to the bygone era of the 50s, foster this spirit which brings a sense of camaraderie, neighborliness, and community with the residents. Experience nostalgia and the preservation of the self-sustainable rural life in this tour of the last surviving link to Singapore’s past.
