Stop along the way to explore the Johore Battery and see its replica World War II gun. Drive past the Changi Prison Complex before stopping at the boardwalk to learn about Singapore's defense strategy during the war. Enjoy free time on the beach before visiting both the Changi Village Market and the Kranji War Memorial, a hospital burial ground during the war that became the final resting place of thousands of Allied servicemen. Your tour ends back at Singapore’s Kranji Stn. Please note: The Changi Museum and Chapel is currently under renovation until late 2020. This stop is now a visit to the temporary exhibition of the Changi Chapel and Museum, which is set up at around the same area as the original.
