Visit a Malay ethnic area which showcases the rich cultural heritage of the Malays. Then, head to the Changi Chapel and Museum and learn about one of the darkest times of Singapore's history. Lastly, meet the locals at the typical heartland township of Tampines New Town.

Highlights
  • Revisit Singapore's wartime history at the Changi Museum and Chapel.
  • Check out Tampines New Town, a heartland town in the modern day city state.

Description

Start your afternoon tour at 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 your 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.

We enjoyed the Singapore Heritage Tour - East Coast and Changi, and found it very interesting and well worth doing.

The Guide gave a very good background history to Changi, and the museum presentation is excellent and very moving.
We also learnt a lot about the local Singaporeans way of life, and thoroughly recommend this tour
