What You Can Expect
Once the site of many prisoner-of-war camps during the Japanese Occupation, Changi has since gone down in history as a place of much pain, torture and human suffering. It is said that more Australian PoWs perished under incarceration than in battle itself. Whether it is on the Death Railway or the countless labour camps in Japan and Formosa (Taiwan), the Changi WWII trail commemorates the fight of brave men and women during battle and in internment. Hear their story.

Ness and I (Eric) were on this tour with Carol, and then a personal tour with Helena and driver Anthony. Both were excellent!
Just a few highlights: the personal family connections both Helena and Carol have to the Fall of Singapore, their heart-felt enthusiasm for the subject, and the ease with which they explain Japanese and Allied strategies during the battle.
The most haunting moment for me was standing at the beach where the Japanese machine-gunned prisoners, hoping the tide would simply carry the bodies away (it didn't). It's hard to take in that such a beautiful spot could be the site of so much horror.
It's an unforgettable experience, and thanks to everyone involved in keeping these tours going!
