The landmarks and memorials in present day Singapore serve to tell the island’s decorated history. Most are related to the World War II period, while others reveal the island’s colonial past and Chinese immigrant influence. Two monuments you must visit are the Kranji War Memorial and Civilian War Memorial. Both were erected to honour the men and women who gave their lives for Singapore during World War II. Take your time to visit the other landmarks and memorials too, and discover the stories of old.
