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.
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).
Helena was a fantastic tour guide, adding insights in between facts as she lead us around each location which really made the tour a unique experience. We could have listened to her all day! I have no personal connection to the Changi history, but everything I saw, read and heard on this tour has made me want to continue reading the stories that have shaped Singapore into the amazing country it is today. I think all cultures can appreciate this tour. Booking through Viator was also quick and stress free and I'd happily do the whole thing again. A big thank you to fellow reviewees :)
This was an amazing experience. Helena was the best tour guide I've ever had worldwide. I'm really thankful for the work she and the Museum are doing to preserve Singapore's history in the face of constant development.
I'll definitely do more Changi tours when I'm in Singapore next.
