  1. 1 April 2013 – SINGAPORE is making a pitch for its first Unesco World Heritage Site – the 154-year-old Botanic Gardens.

    It has sent its initial application for the coveted status to the global body, formally known as the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation.

    The historic gardens was founded at its present site in 1859 by an agri-horticultural society. Its director, Dr Nigel Taylor, said an application to Unesco was made last December.
