Singapore Botanic Gardens turns 150

People travelling in south-east Asia this year will be able to visit the Botanic Gardens during Singapore tours as the attraction celebrates its 150th anniversary.

The Singapore Botanic Gardens (SBG) was founded in 1859 and has developed into one of the city-state’s most popular tourist sites, attracting more than three million visitors every year.

It will open an exhibition dedicated to the evolutionary scientists Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace as part of its anniversary celebrations in July, followed by a photographic display exploring the world’s rainforests in December.

Permanent attractions at the Botanic Gardens include a tract of primeval forest, a herbarium, Asia’s largest collection of rare palms and an orchid culture that is thought to be the most comprehensive in the world.

Divya Panickar, a spokesperson for the Singapore Tourism Board, said: "The 150th anniversary of the founding of the SBG is truly a milestone event in the city’s history.

"Like Singapore itself, the SBG keeps evolving to ensure it remains a vital and integral part in the lives of the city’s residents and a highlight on any visitor’s itinerary."

The Singapore Night Safari is another popular natural attraction in the Asian city state, along with the city zoo and the Bukit Timah reserve.
