Singapore island tour

Gain a fascinating insight into the tribulations endured by Singapore during the Second World War with this comprehensive tour of its key historical sites and monuments. The excursion culminates with a visit to one of the island’s most contemporary attractions, the extraordinary Gardens by the Bay. Your tour begins at the Changi Chapel and Museum, which commemorate the lives of both POWs and civilian internees who survived the Japanese occupation of the island in World War II. The Changi Chapel is a symbolic replica of the original chapel found in the Changi Prison, which notoriously housed about 3,000 inmates in a space designed for 600. The chapel, which was built by Allied POWs using simple tools and found materials, is a poignant reminder of the unbroken spirit of the detainees. Next the tour heads to Bright Hill Temple, a famous Chinese place of ancestral worship and crematorium. Then we drive past the Johore Battery and view a replica 15-inch ‘Monster Gun’, the largest to be installed outside Britain during World War II. After lunch at a local restaurant we travel north to the Kranji War Memorial. Unveiled in 1957, the memorial commemorates the more than 20,000 men and women who gave their lives for freedom in World War II. Finally the tour culminates with a visit to the Gardens by the Bay and the opportunity to explore one of the island’s most cutting-edge developments. This astonishing park, boasting over 250,000 rare plants and 18 ‘Supertrees’, stakes a strong claim to being a modern wonder of the world. Taking you from the Second World War right up to the present day, this tour provides a fascinating snapshot of Singapore’s recent past and present.
