Tour description provided by Viator

Retrace Singapore's WWII history with this round-island tour that will take you to Changi Chapel and Museum and Kranji War Memorial. Explore both sites with your guide to discover the small details of the lives of POWs that were imprisoned in Changi and the countless men and women who bravely defended Singapore against the Japanese invasion. Admire the intricate architecture of the structures of Bright Hill Temple. Your tour includes hotel pickup and drop-off and lunch at a local restaurant.

Start with a leisurely morning stroll along Singapore’s highest pedestrian bridge, Henderson Waves, and take in the lush greenery of Mount Faber and Telok Blangah Hill.

Continue west to Haw Par Villa, embark on an unforgettable journey into Chinese folklore and mythology at this park. Journey north to the Kranji War Memorial to pay respects to the countless World War II heroes. Unveiled in 1957, the memorial commemorates over 20,000 men and women who gave their lives for freedom in World War II.

Lunch at a local restaurant before proceeding Singapore's Bright Hill Temple, famous for its Chinese crematorium and well-stocked turtle pond. Follow your guide on an exploration of the grounds and marvel at the intricate architectural details of the structures and the beautifully landscaped gardens.

Cross from the North-Central to Eastern Singapore to make our last stop at Changi Chapel and Museum to gain an insight into the memories and lives of both POWs and civilian internees who survived the Japanese Occupation. The Changi Chapel is a symbolic replica of the original chapel found in the Changi Prison.
