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.

One of the best tours we have been on thanks to our great guide Carol, who gave us an excellent insight into a very sad time in Singapore's history by revealing her own family experiences to the group.

Pouring rain did not dull this wonderful moving experience that no Aussie should miss.
Our guide was clear, knowledgeable and paced the day beautifully. Her insights into the Singaporean Chinese perspective of the events of 1942 - 45 were moving and informative.
