Full description
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.

This scary tour is for those who don't want to do the usual stuff. Run through dark parks and cemeteries and let the candlelight show you the way, of course under the supervision of the director. Also learn about the history of Singapore during World War II. For an increased creep factor I would recommend this tour to smaller groups in particular. If you are lucky like us, the manager will take you to dinner afterwards, where you can get to know the local cuisine. The manager picked us up personally from the hotel in a private vehicle and even kept us up to date about the traffic-related delay via WhatsApp. Class.

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.
