You probably haven’t heard much about Singapore’s wartime history, but the island was taken over by the Japanese in World War Two – and this tour reveals all. The little talked-about Battle of Singapore – which lasted just over a week – led to the largest surrender of the British-led military personnel in history. First, you can pay your respects at the Kranji War Memorial, which honours the men and women who died in the line of duty during the Second World War. The thought-provoking, hillside cemetery has a memorial bearing the names of over 20,000 soldiers killed in south-east Asia with no known graves. Then you’ll visit Fort Siloso and the Cenotaph at Esplandade Park, which is a war memorial that honours those who died during World War One and Two.
