Join your guide, an expert in Singapore's rich heritage and colorful history, at the Labrador MRT Station. Your half-day tour takes you by coach through the intense fire of battle and the fog of war that led to Singapore's fall in WWII.

See highlights such as Labrador Battery — the site of Fort Pasir Panjang and a 6-inch gun battery — and head to Alexandra Hospital to learn about the infamous massacre that took place there. Then, visit the Kranji War Cemetery, part of the Commonwealth War Graves that commemorate war heroes and heroines.

During your coach tour, your guide will share intricate strategies, subtle plots, great follies and explosive action from the battlefield. You’ll get acquainted with the British, Australian, Indian and Malayan defenders of Singapore, which fell in just eight days under the command of British Army officer Arthur Ernest Percival.

After you’ve uncovered the realities of the Battle of Singapore, shrouded by seductive myths and deceptive propaganda, your tour concludes at Fort Canning Hill.
