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 Changi Village, located on the east coast of Singapore. Upon arrival, stop at the Changi Chapel and Museum, dedicated to those who both survived and perished in the Changi region during WWII. See tools, personal belongings and other artifacts on display, all used by Singapore’s POWs during Japanese occupation.
Listen to your private guide recount stories of the collective spirit that rose in Changi through the darkest times of war, and learn about the cultural heritage of Singapore’s ethnic Malays. As you explore the chapel and museum with your guide, hear about pre-war living conditions and the effect of militarization on Changi.
After touring the site, drive through Changi Village for a glimpse of this relaxed and rustic side of Singapore, and continue to Tampines New Town. You’ll make a brief stop in this typical heartland township for a contrasting view of present-day Singapore, including a visit to the wet market, coffee shop and housing blocks, before drop-off at your hotel.
