Tour description provided by Viator

Take a private tour of Changi Chapel and Museum, and witness World War II history in Changi Village – an ethnic Malay enclave on Singapore’s east coast. With a professional guide, discover the Malays’ rich cultural heritage and witness life in a mid-century ‘kampung’ (traditional dwelling). You’ll hear stories of POW heroism during Japanese occupation and witness typical daily life in modern-day Tampines New Town. Round-trip transport by private, air-conditioned vehicle is included.

Meet your professional guide upon hotel pickup in Singapore, and transfer by private vehicle 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.
