The Basics

Singapore was a key player in the Pacific Theater of World War II, and the Kranji War Memorial is one of the best spots in the city to learn more about this chapter in history. To get the most out of your visit, join a World War II-themed tour of Singapore, which typically combine the memorial with the exhibition on the Japanese occupation at the Changi Chapel Museum; the Johore Battery; and the Selarang Barracks.

Ace was a really good tour guide...
Ace was a really good tour guide, and we greatly enjoyed the long tour. The only suggestion that could make the tour better would be if it included lunch at a local restaurant. We literally drove around the entire island, and visited so many sights that we could never have done this on our own. A fascinating view of history of Singapore.
