Overzicht

Oproep geschiedenis en oorlogsliefhebbers! Kom meer te weten over de Slag om Singapore, die slechts acht dagen in 1942 tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog plaatsvond, tijdens deze bustour met een informatieve gids die de realiteit en mythen van de rampzalige strijd op een inzichtelijke manier uitlegt. Je zult horen waarom Singapore, bijgenaamd het 'Gibraltar van het Oosten', zo snel aan de Japanners viel als je historische oorlogssites zoals Battlebox en Kranji War Cemetery verkent.
  • Battle of Singapore-tour van 3 uur
  • Ga Battlebox binnen bij Fort Canning Hill
  • Bezoek de Kranji War Cemetery, een oorlogsgraf van het Gemenebest ter herdenking van oorlogshelden
  • Ontdek mythen over het slagveld met je deskundige gids!

De redenen dat reizigers voor deze tour kiezen

Leer over de Slag om Singapore en de gevolgen van de Tweede Wereldoorlog van een gepassioneerde gids die deze tour tot een bijzonder inzichtelijke en ontroerende ervaring maakt.
Je historische tour begint in het Battlebox bezoekerscentrum (Fort Canning Hill), waar je je gids ontmoet.

Zeer goed geïnformeerd over de fascinerende geschiedenis van Singapore, zal uw gids commentaar geven over de Slag om Singapore, toen de Japanners Singapore binnenvielen in februari 1942 tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Luister naar verhalen over strategie en intense gevechten; leer over de verschillende troepen die vochten aan de kant van Singapore - Australisch, Brits, Indisch en Maleis; en hoor hoe Singapore in slechts acht dagen werd verslagen onder het commando van de Britse officier Arthur Ernest Percival.

Terwijl je de stad per bus bezoekt, zie je bezienswaardigheden zoals Battlebox, het British Far East Command Centre, waar de beslissing werd genomen om je over te geven aan de Japanners. Bezoek dan Kranji War Cemetery, dat deel uitmaakt van de oorlogsgraven van het Gemenebest ter ere van oorlogshelden en heldinnen.

Na deze verhelderende ervaring van het ontmaskeren van enkele van de mythen rond de Battle of Singapore, eindigt je tour bij het Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station.

This was an exceptional tour and our tour guide was one of, if not the best guide I have ever had lead a tour. The story of the Singapore battle in WWII is very interesting and this tour gives a great view of the history. I would highly recommend this tour.

Once again, a really well thought out tour with a guide who not only was an expert in her field but a genuinedly nice person too. I had a fabulous afternoon and would recommend this trip and this guide to anybody who has a few hours to spare in Singapore and wants to learn the real truth behing what happened here in early 1942. Five stars from me!

Nancy was an excellent guide and this tour is a very worthwhile experience. Thank you for helping me understand not only Australia's involvement in the Battle of Singapore but also the other Allied forces involved and that of the Singapore people. The tour of the Battle Box the underground command centre constructed under Fort Canning was very good, followed by the comfortable bus trip to Kranji War Memorial. We had been there the day before for the Anzac Day Dawn Service but seeing the memorial again at a quieter time with a smaller group gave us more time to walk amongst the graves and reflect upon reading the headstones with the added advantage of being able to ask questions of Nancy. This tour is the perfect compliment to the Changi WW2 War Trail and Museum Tour, so I recommend both tours if you are in Singapore long enough.

Our tour guide, Wui Wui, was delightful and I found her maps and knowledge refreshing. The information shared was very comprehensive. Unfortunately, the weather was not refreshing and because of my advanced age and disability, I was limited for walking long distances. But this did not matter because Wui Wui always included her entire presentation to me if I wasn't able to get to the point where everyone else had gone. Even after the tour, Wui Wui directed me to the rest rooms, water, and made sure that I had a taxi to return to the airport. I could not have been treated better if she had been my own daughter. If all of the guides and programs are this dedicated, your customers will be very pleased.

The tour was well organised and the tour guide very knowledgable. Interesting to gain an understanding of fall of Singapore. There is a lot more to Singapore than the glitzy shopping malls.
