Singapore WWII Tour - Changi Museum War Trail

We would highly recommend the Singapore WWII Tour - Changi Museum War Trail tour to anyone interested in this period of Asian history. Our guide, Carol, was extremely knowledgeable and passionate and, despite the limited number of physical relics remaining from the era, we were kept enthralled and entertained for the 3+ hours, gaining deep insights into the history and events experienced by those who lived through them. ...Kristen A., Singapore – See more reviews

Description

Once the site of many prisoners-of-war camps during the Japanese Occupation, Changi has since gone down in history as a place of much pain, torture and human suffering. It is said that more Australian Prisoners of War perished under incarceration than during the battle itself.

Whether it is on the Death Railway or the countless labor camps in Japan and Formosa (Taiwan), the Changi WWII trail commemorates all who fought and suffered during those dark years of captivity. Hear the story of the brave men and women who fought in battle and lived in internment.
