What You Can Expect

Private Changi Chapel and Museum Tour from Singapore

Private Tour: Changi Village, Chapel and Museum Half-Day Tour from Singapore

Meet your professional guide upon hotel pickup in Singapore, and transfer by private vehicle to Changi Village, located on the east coast of Singapore. Upon arrival, stop at the Changi Chapel and Museum, dedicated to those who both survived and perished in the Changi region during WWII. See tools, personal belongings and other artifacts on display, all used by Singapore’s POWs during Japanese occupation.

Listen to your private guide recount stories of the collective spirit that rose in Changi through the darkest times of war, and learn about the cultural heritage of Singapore’s ethnic Malays. As you explore the chapel and museum with your guide, hear about pre-war living conditions and the effect of militarization on Changi.

After touring the site, drive through Changi Village for a glimpse of this relaxed and rustic side of Singapore, and continue to Tampines New Town. You’ll make a brief stop in this typical heartland township for a contrasting view of present-day Singapore, including a visit to the wet market, coffee shop and housing blocks, before drop-off at your hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2012

This tour was fantastic. Our tour guide Margaret was wonderful with loads of knowledge and information. A very emotional day, where we learnt more about the history of Changi and the atrocities that ooh place. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Singapore. Thanks again Margaret your knowledge was amazing and you educated us about Singapore in general too!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2010

Our personal guide and our chauffeur helped to make this very emotional trip a lovely experience. Changi Museum is very explicit, hard on the senses, it will make you weep, but our lovely guide made it bearable by her sympathetic approach. A must for anyone interested in WWII history.
