Picked up from our hotel to join the excursion, which was an excellent tour with a knowledgeable guide. The itinerary was a good mix to get a flavour of the island and its past. The local lunch was good too, and I appreciated the effort made to cater for a vegetarian. Would definitely use Viator again for ease of booking and value for money.

How wonderful it was to visit the Changi War Museum. Having family who were prisoners in Changi it was great to be there and see the photos of how the prisoners lived. To see part of the prison wall was very moving although we did not do a tour of this. The Krangi War Memorial was very touching and amazing to see so many names of people who lost their lives from everywhere in the world, a must do.
Bright Hill Temple was very spectacular - the structures on the buildings were amazing and this was a very interesting and great tour. Again a must do.
