Tour description provided by Viator

Visit Changi Chapel and Museum with a professional guide in Changi Village, an ethnic Malay community of Singapore. Learn about the rich cultural heritage of the Malays and see what life was like in a mid-century ‘kampung’ (traditional dwelling) before stopping in Tampines New Town. You’ll relive World War II history and appreciate stories of POW heroism during Japanese occupation as well as witness daily life in this coastal enclave today.

Upon hotel pickup, drive to Kampong Glam – named after the Gelam Tree which grew in abundance in the 1800s. Once the seat of the old Malay Royalty, it still retains the charm of a bygone era and the influence of the Arab traders.Let our guide recount stories of collective spirits that rose through the darkest times of World War II as you proceed with your tour to Changi Chapel and Museum. The Museum inspires future generations to appreciate the heroic and inspirational stories that unfolded in Changi.A drive through rustic, laid-back Changi Village and pockets of remnants of the British Changi Airbase gives you a chance to see the relaxing side of Singapore providing a contrast to Tampines New Town, a typical heartland township of present day Singapore. Take a walk and mingle with the locals as they go about their daily chores. Next travel like the locals using the MRT public transport. Part of the journey runs above ground and journeys through many scenic parts of Singapore’s heartland.  Your day will complete with a drop-off at your hotel.
