Singapore Botanic Gardens listed in World Heritage Site by UNESCO, likely to boost tourism

Published on : Tuesday, July 7, 2015

UnescoAccording to Second Minister for Trade and Industry S. Iswaran, the Singapore Botanic Gardens expected to boost tourism, as now it has been listed in World Heritage Site by UNESCO. However he stressed that need to manage the growing interest in the Gardens, it’s important to balance between visitorship on the one hand, and maintaining its beauty, so that experience becomes memorable for all.

 

 

Each year more than 4 million people visit the Botanic Gardens, but the National Parks Board expects this number to increase by 20 % after the Gardens was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site on Saturday.

 

 

Mr. Iswaran said “The gardens is a “national treasure”, which Singaporeans have grown to love and enjoy. In terms of the recognition as a UNESCO world heritage site, I think it’s a fitting recognition of the important place it occupies in Singapore’s society and in our own history – the 150 history – and it demonstrates an important part of a modern city like Singapore where we still maintain and preserve our cultural and natural heritage. And in this instance, the Botanic Gardens is an excellent example.”
