Malay Spice Garden and Heritage Trees at Fort Canning

Have you ever tried the famous Laksa? What does the word Laksa mean?
Come and join our tour of the Spice Garden and you will learn which herbs are used for this national dish.

The Spice Garden traces its beginnings to 1822, when Singapore’s first experimental and botanical garden was established on that very site by Sir Stamford Raffles, the “founder” of Singapore.
We will discover other herbs that are used in local dishes such as nutmeg and cloves trees, coffee and cacao trees and even vanilla plants. Star Fruit, Durian, Bilimbi, Buah Keluak and more! All trees and plants are clearly labeled.
The walk will be mostly in the shade of some magnificent Heritage Trees.

We will be guided by Verena, an active SAS member.

After the walk, you are welcome to join us for lunch @ The Straits Café (Rendezvous Hotel) where we can taste their Nonya Laksa.

We look forward to seeing you there!
