The Singapore Botanic Gardens represents different things to different people, but what makes it worthy of being a UNESCO World Heritage Site? As one of the most well-preserved British botanic gardens in the world, and the cradle of Southeast Asia’s prosperous rubber industry, it is truly “more than a garden”!

Trace the story of how rubber, a non-indigenous plant to Singapore, contributed to the face of our economic landscape. From the Gardens, rubber production in Southeast Asia catapulted to being number one in the world. Learn about the innovative rubber tapping methods that revolutionised rubber harvesting, and how Singapore’s pioneering rubber tycoons made their mark in more ways than one!

Explore the fascinating landscape of the Gardens, which has been miraculously conserved for more than 150 years, and see how the Gardens has grown together with Singapore.
