Fort Siloso, Sentosa Island

4.0
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. By using our Sentosa Island travel route website , you can arrange your visit to Fort Siloso and other attractions in Sentosa Island.

  • We did a self guided tour of the Fort and we were so glad we did it. The information was hard to read at times (because of the struggled endured) but everything was well presented and very humbling to...  more »
  • Well worth a visit to learn some of Singapore's history. The displays and information were all good and we were able to get an understanding of what happened here.  more »
  • The Fort is no building as one classic may imagine a Fort. It's a collection of flat buildings and tunnels on a hill. The walk there is great. The information is interesting and the trip is indeed not a memorable highlight, but provides a sense of the military past of Singapore. Worthwhile Yes, not a must!

  • A look back into the history of war and Singapore's part in it. This fort is located on the Sentosa island. A good place to walk around and spend an hour or so and learn the history. Free entry ! You might run into numerous peacocks on your stroll through the fort like we did.
  • Nice fort with many old guns well preserved and tunnels. Free entry but no guided tours. Some areas are closed but still an interesting area.
  • Must visit for history lovers. Will take you to WW II days and the way things turned up for the Island. Very well maintained. Next to ever happening Silioso beach.
  • Takes time and effort to go through the trails. Seems like a good place to have some close encounter with nature while seeing some history
  • A very interesting monument about the history of Singapore during world war 2. A must see if you are in Sentosa. By the way, it's 100% free, something you may appreciate on Sentosa
