SINGAPORE: A walk to remember Singapore by — that’s what the Preservation of Monuments Board hopes to achieve, as it announced 12 new guided tours of local heritage sites.
The new tours start this weekend.
Prinsep Street Presbyterian Church and Hong San See Temple have just been included in the new guided tours of Singapore’s heritage sites.
A book has also been published — one that aims to nurture the love for history in children.
Speaking at the launch, Senior Minister of State Lawrence Wong said the initiative is timely.
"Today, as our social fabric becomes more diverse, it is even more important that we strengthen the forces that unite us, and find common ground in our shared history, and sense of purpose," he said.
