Fort Siloso, Sentosa Island
(4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Take a step back in time to World War II with a trip to Fort Siloso, the restored coastal gun battery from Fortress Singapore. The fort played a significant role as a sea trading port for the British in the 19th century, and it also served as a defense from sea invasion. The fort even served as a prisoner-of-war camp briefly during Japanese occupation. It is the only preserved coastal fort in the country, and it is now home to a military museum full of memorabilia of World War II guns, remains of fortified military structures, and tunnels. The fort is best explored with the help of a knowledgeable guide, who will impart more information than the limited signage provides.

  • Warning: visit the place with someone. I was alone touring the fort until I went into an old barracks. To my curiosity, I went to check the back area as it appeared to be quite inviting. Slowly, I bent my head and woh! I was surprised to see a man standing at the other end of the building. I was terrified that it was someone "alive" who can possibly hurt me and then quickly, I ran up to the top. Ghosts are not a problem but for safety purposes, I'll never go to that area alone again.
  • Awesome place. Beautiful view. Fort siloso is based on history of 2nd Worl War Heros.
  • Well worth a visit, being a British ex-pat I learnt heaps about the involvement of Singapore and Japan during WW2. It's also one of the few places in SG where you can be alone/far from the madding crowd! (Also it's free!)
  • Something for free on sentosa! Very interesting stop, sky walk is also filled with information about the surrounding islands. The Fort has lots of buildings with very good air conditioning too. Highly recommended if you have an hour or two.
  • Take your time to see the different passages and barracks, and view the informations about the war. Very informative. The preserved areas are a way to feel the the history of the war
