Changi WWII War Trail and Museum Tour

Changi WWII War Trail and Museum Tour

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.

Join the guides who are experts in Singapore's rich heritage and colorful history. Highlights on this tour include The Changi Museum, Johore Battery (replica of WWII 15-inch gun battery), outside Selarang Barracks, Changi Village and Changi Beach (site of Sook Ching Massacre).

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

A great tour, revealing all the suffering of war at Changi and surrounding areas! Our guide Wina was first class giving us insights into the cruelty, suffering and even some of the humour of the POWs while in captivity. She presented with some humour and had a vast knowledge of the tragedies that occurred , with a little personal history of her own families involvement! I would highly recommend this tour, our only wish was to have spent more time in the museum!

Excellent tour - the tour guide Wui Wui was fantastic, very knowledgable and had a great sense of humour, yet ensured the tour was very professional and very respectful.
Quite an emotional tour, really great value for money - highly recommend.
