Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Changi WWII War Trail and Museum Tour

Changi WWII War Trail and Museum Tour

Weekend Itinerary: (Saturday)
Your tour starts by meeting your knowledgeable guide, an expert in Singapore’s fascinating history who will share enlightening information about the country’s turbulent WWII years throughout this experience.
After the Battle of Singapore in 1942, which Singapore lost to Japanese forces, the island country spent time under the Japanese Occupation, and the Changi area was the center of much pain and suffering by prisoners of war (PoWs), mostly British and Australian, who were placed in internment camps here. With your guide, visit several sites in the area to learn more about these events, such as Johore Battery, a replica of a 15-inch gun battery, and Selarang Barracks. Explore the Changi Museum and Chapel, check out Changi Village and see Changi Beach to learn about the Sook Ching Massacre that took place here.

Weekday Itinerary: (Wednesday)
Commemorate the fight of brave men and women during World War II in Malaya and Singapore, and their subsequent internment. Go back in history to Changi, once the site of many prisoner-of-war camps during the Japanese Occupation, and the site of much pain, torture and human suffering. It is said that more Australian PoWs perished from incarceration than in battle itself.
Then, take in the solemn sights of Kranji War Cemetery, the final resting place of 4,461 Allied military personnel who perished in Malaya and Singapore, and more than 24,000 war dead whose remains were never found. Hear their stories of bravery and commitment, and be inspired by the power of the human spirit.
Meet at Pasir Ris MRT, outside Exit B.
Drop off point: City Hall MRT

I thought this trip was very informative about the WW11 invasion by the Japanese. Wina our guide was very knowledgeable and the Changhi museum certainly brought home the sadness and suffering so many people endured and what a pointless exercise WAR is and how the future generation of all nations should be made aware of. It was even more poignant having this trip on Remembrance Day.
I would recommend anyone visiting Singapore to do one of these trips.

The guide had very good English and had a lot of knowledge to share, it also provides something quite different from what the city part of Singapore gives you. So if you think walking around the malls, hotels or shops etc started to get boring this could be a really good choice.

Really good historical tour. Just getting there in the taxi and returning on the train was good value. Met great people, learned lots, saw heaps. We finished at the Museum - top rate. If you are at all interested in the war events, do go.
