Commemorate the fight of brave men and women during World War II in Malaya and Singapore, and the trials and tribulations of their subsequent internment. Turn back the clock in Changi, once the site of many prisoner-of-war camps during the Japanese Occupation, the nexus of much pain and suffering, where life lay on a knife's edge. 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 thousands who perished in Malaya and Singapore. Hear their stories of bravery and commitment, and be inspired by the power of the human spirit. Finally, contemplate the Cenotaph, a war memorial which is an oasis of peace amidst the bustle of the Central Business District. See the battle scars of history frozen in time even as the city-state races into the 21st century.
Highly recommend this tour ! We were met at the Pasir RIs MRT station by the tour guides who both spoke English very well. Tour is very comfortable with limited walking, so it's good for the young and old. Tour takes place on an air conditioned coach - allow 4 hours for full tour. We had 2 teenagers with us 13 and 15 who enjoyed seeing Changi and learning more about the history of WWII in Singapore. Our tour guide Carol was excellent with a depth of knowledge of the WWII history and a passion for sharing and preserving the information. This is definitely one of the best tours we did in Singapore.
Apparently this was the first tour since the closing of the Museum for redevelopment and therefore the first to review.
Our tour guide Carol was wonderful and obviously really has a passion for her job which came across in adundance.
The tour itself is very interesting and Carol keeps us informed every step of the way with stories and antidotes which are very welcome and informative, giving us a perspective that perhaps we hadnt considered before.
This is a really informative tour if you are interested in WW2 history in this region and would definitely recommend, especially if you get Carol as your guide. She deserves 5 stars to herself
Really enjoyed this tour. It was just about the right length of time and nothing dragged as our guides commentary continued between sites and she was also able to explain what happened in a factual way but at the same time giving you a tug on your emotions.
I would recommend this tour.
For a local, it was an eye-opener. The guide was very good. Highly recommend!
Excellent tour and the tour guide was excellent. Recommend
This is important to learn the history of a place.
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.
Great and intense experience.
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.
Very knowledgeable guide who gave some personal stories. Would recommend
