Overview
Commemorate the fight of brave men and women during World War II in Malaya and Singapore, and the trials and tribulations of their subsequent internment. Turn back the clock in Changi, once the site of many prisoner-of-war camps during the Japanese Occupation, the nexus of much pain and suffering, where life lay on a knife’s edge. It is said that more Australian PoWs perished from incarceration than in battle itself.

With a view of the Straits of Johor, appreciate the Singapore defence strategy while at Changi Boardwalk. Discover a slice of old Singapore at the quaint Changi Village and learn about its role in the war.

Then, take in the solemn sights of Kranji War Cemetery, the final resting place of thousands who perished in Malaya and Singapore. Hear their stories of bravery and commitment, and be inspired by the power of the human spirit.

We had the 'Dragon' lady lead this tour! Thoroughly pleasant, amiable and very very knowledgable. The best part of the tour for me was Kranji cemetery. I am surprised that the Singapore government is yet to make the most of the country's interesting war past. I found the

As a disclaimer--my husband is an absolute history buff. Our guide, Carol Dragon was exceptional. She was animated and very knowledgeable. The downside to this tour is that there is not a lot to see at some of the sights. That said, Carol did a great job of bringing the history
