Best Singapore Round-Island Tour with Changi Prison, Kranji War Memorial and Gardens by the Bay

WW2 War Memorial, Singapore

After pickup from your hotel, proceed to Changi Chapel and Museum where you will gain an interesting insight into the lives and memories of both POWs and civilian internees who survived the Japanese occupation. Tour the exhibits for touching stories about these POWs.

Then, visit Singapore's Bright Hill Temple, famous for its Chinese crematorium and well-stocked turtle pond. Follow your guide on an exploration of the grounds and marvel at the intricate architectural details of the structures and the beautifully landscaped gardens.

Hop back into the vehicle and drive past the Johore Battery. Get a glimpse of a replicated 15-inch 'Monster Gun', built by the British in 1939 and one of the largest guns installed outside Great Britain during World War II.

Take a rest and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before continuing on with a visit to the Kranji War Memorial. Unveiled in 1957, the memorial, overlooking the Straits of Johore, is the last resting place for many of the allied soldiers who lost their lives in World War II. It commemorates by name over 20,000 men and women of the forces who have no known grave.

End your tour with a stop at Gardens By the Bay. Experience the development of modern Singapore as you view more than 250,000 species of rare plants and Supertrees housed within the garden. Learn about how the park was built to raise the quality of life of Singaporeans by enhancing greenery and flora in the city.

At the end of your tour, be dropped off back at your hotel.

Fantastic guide, Maggie, was a fountain of knowledge about everything from politics to housing! Very interesting lady. The tour was vary good. First visit was to a monastery where an actual cremation was taking place in the crematorium below. We learned about burial and death customs for the different religions and nationalities that make Singapore their home. The Kranji war museum was interesting as was Changi museum. Lunch was excellent and well worth the money. We ran out of time at Gardens by the Bay so we didn't get to enjoy this part of the tour for more than 30 minutes due to tardy people on the bus. A great tour, worth doing.

Excellent trip around the island. We thought timings may have been a little tight but actually worked well. The guide was very informative. Changi Prison Museum and the Kranji Memorial are extremely moving. The Gardens at the Bay are stunning we spent 3 hours there without any trouble. The tour price only allows for the outside gardens but it is well worth S28 to go inside the different domes.
