    One has to go if you are Australian, English , Indian etc etc to pay respect to these fallen men. When you see the age of some of these men it breaks your heart to see such waste. A MUST.  more »

    A poignant place that's extremely well-maintained and relevant to the events of World War II and its effects in Singapore and South East Asia. The site is maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

    An example of a superbly maintained war memorial that honors those who served in the defense of freedom. Located adjacent to the Singapore Turf Club, the memorial is accessible by bus, train, car, bike and on foot. Limited parking is available at the memorial. There are guides available at the main entrance as well as a book identifying the layout of the memorial. Mind that there are no facilities available so plan accordingly. There is a bus stop just outside the memorial and Kranji MRT is a few hundred meters up the street.

    How to review a cemetery ? You can't really; jst need to visit & pay your respects to those who gave their lives so we can enjoy our lives today. Very humbling & puts some of the scale of loss into perspective.
