Singapore’s tourism industry is one of those hardest hit by COVID-19. If you’d like to get to know this island we call home a little better, it’s time to put on your tourist hat and go claim some of those SingapoRediscovers vouchers.

The Battlebox

Located at Fort Canning, The Battlebox was the British Command Centre during World War II in Singapore. It was there that the British made the decision to formally surrender to the Japanese invaders.

Did you know that despite being a World War II heritage site, The Battlebox is managed by a privately owned firm? Despite being on their own, they have done well for themselves, winning the TripAdvisor’s Traveller’s Choice Awards 5 years in a row from 2016 – 2020.

You can see why we’re recommending them.

Price: $40 for the full tour of The Battlebox and Fort Canning Hill

Pulau Ubin Tour

Oriental Travel and Tours first came to our attention through their Creepy Tales of Singapore tour. But that’s hardly all that they do. They also operate tours throughout the Singapore heartlands as well as a 3-hour tour around Pulau Ubin. Get to see a Tudor style house, a 150 year old temple and bask in the distinct lack of skyscrapers and abundance of wildlife.

Just be sure not to get too close to the wild boars.

Though they currently have less than 30 reviews on TripAdvisor, they are all extremely positive.

Price: $150 per person (minimum of 2 people required)
