Travel back to World War 2 and the horrors of the Changi Prisoner-of-War camps during the Japanese occupation of Singapore. Follow the path of major war memorials, including the site of the Sook Ching Massacre, Changi Chapel and more.
What to Expect
This 3-hour coach and walking tour is a must-do for military history aficionados and anyone interested in the turbulent, and not-so-distant, past of the island state of Singapore. Now a world-class city and economic powerhouse, during the war it was a scene of horror following the Japanese occupation.
It is estimated that more Australian prisoners perished during incarceration in the labor camps than died in battle itself. The Changi World War 2 trail commemorates the struggle of these brave men and women during battle and their internment, and this tour tells some of their stories.
You will visit the Changi Museum and Changi Chapel, explore Changi Village and visit a replica of a 15-inch gun battery at Johor Battery. You will learn about the Selarang Barracks, the former Japanese Prisoner-of-War Camp and hear how Singapore fell out of the control of the Allies in 1942.
A poignant, yet inspiring, tour it remembers the pain, torture and human suffering, and celebrates the spirit of survival against the odds.
