Embark on a journey filled with history and cultural understanding, reflected through the stunning architecture, landmarks and prominent structures of Singapore
If you are looking for an adventure that can show you the unusual side of Singapore, then this tour might fit your preference for a more laid back and relaxing getaway. Escape from the big city lights to embark on a journey of cultural and historical discovery that will take place on the eastern tip of Singapore. Contrary to the super high rise buildings that fill most part of the nation, you will catch a glimpse a slower life pace. Known for their identity as a multicultural nation, Singapore prides herself on the three majority race that comprises of Chinese, Indian and Malay. In the beginning of the tour, you will get a glimpse of a Malay-ethnic dominated area that will introduce you to the cultural heritage of this nation.
Being one of the victims of the World War II, Singapore has her fair share in going through those dark days which is well reflected and documented in the Changi Museum. Stepping into the museum will give you the time travel experience to 70 years ago, where Japanese occupation in Singapore took place. The museum is parted in five zones, Storyboards, Changi Prison section, Changi Murals, Wartime Artists and End of War. Besides the museum, there lies a majestic replicated Chapel that has been built and relocated over the past decades. This museum is known to have displayed some of the most emotion-evoking images, drawings and letters left by the war prisoners.
Here, you will learn the history, more than what has been taught in the class. You will then proceed to Changi Village, in a route that will show you the rustic side of this town. Although Changi is mostly known for the Changi Airport, Changi Village is one of the must-visit places to complete this tour. Your last destination would be in the Tampines, a town that resembles the typical modern city of Singapore. Notice the contrast in the rustic and modern city vibe that you experience earlier in Changi compared to Tampines. Admire the skyline and architecture of the most developed South East Asian country before making your way back to your hotel.
