Singapore: Creepy Tales of World War II and Cemetery Tour

Begin the night on a hill where one of the last and fiercest battles of World War II went down. To get there is no easy feat and you’ll have to walk along a bridge on a secluded and quiet hill.

At the top of the trail, your guide will share the ghastly story of a local war hero with you. Next, head to a coastal-defence gun near a beach, a place where the Japanese possibly massacred thousands of innocent people during the Sook Ching operation. To get to the site, you’ll have to walk in complete darkness. Be sure to keep close, keep your head down, and don’t call anyone by name. Once there, learn how the Japanese tried to suss out the spies and the gruesome stories of how they dealt with them. The last walk will be down one of the world's largest Chinese cemeteries. It’s estimated to house over 100,000 tombs and has been abandoned since its closure in 1973.

The night tour was great! Our guide Roger was really informative on a whole range of subjects. The satay sample and subsequent meal at Lau Pa Sat Hawker food market was delicious and a good introduction to make return trips throughout my stay in Singapore. The lightshow at the Gardens by the Bay was fantastic! A birds eye view for sure. This is a great tour to do in the first day or two in Singapore, it gives you an idea of what is where so you can plan your days from what you learn on tour.

Fantastic experience, the bus crew went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time, saw the barrage, ate food in the satay street market, saw the amazing gardens by the bay rhapsody and had full commentary throughout

What an amazing experience and highly recommended!! We did this on our night one in Singapore and it was soooo spectacular. Amazing crew, incredible views, great memories! A must-do
