Singapore: Creepy Tales of World War II and Cemetery Tour

1. 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. Rumor has it that many have lost their lives there. If you dare, keep your eyes on the surroundings as you make your way there. 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. During the walk, see the difference between a Hokkien and a Teochew tombstone, the Paupers’ Section, and hear some interesting stories about those buried there.

This was a fantastic evening! Jasmine and Stanley were so knowledgeable and exposed us to Singapore history, which we did not get from other tours. It is worth taking the time to learn about this fascinating account of how the island (and it's inhabitants) were treated during WW2. The "creepy" part was a fun and interesting addition! You have to open yourself to this, and it certainly added an element of excitement to the tour! I would strongly recommend this tour - learning the history was fascinating and then experiencing the other world around us was also great.

We enjoyed learning about Singapore’s history as we chase down ghosts that lurk within Singapore’s historic spots. The guides were the absolute best - combining the story behind each spot while being empowered by a rich set of personal experiences over the years of doing this tour.

The tour is a really fun way to learn about the stories of the war in Singapore, especially if you like horror. The two guides are exceptionally good and make the tour a highly recommended experience.

Fantastic from start to finish! We throughly enjoyed the tour and the hosts were brilliant. Highly recommended!

A great tour to do with friends. The tour guides were very informative, fun and helpful.
