According to tales, the bravery of the Filipinos was exceptional thus taking the credit of the name of the fort. The word siloso in the Philippines means a "jealous man". But this does not mean that Filipinos were a jealous kin. There was no written explanation on why the word siloso among so many other Filipino words. But it was... More

One of the by products of travelling around Asia,in my opinion,is the colonial history and this place falls into that category. The guns in this fort played a big role prior to the Japanese occupation and the fort is remarkably intact. I enjoyed the well presented historical facts around the place and my wife really enjoyed the warning signs about... More

Fort Siloso is a restored coastal gun battery which made up "Fortress Singapore" leading up to and including WW2. Unfortunately like the rest of the theme park focused Sentosa Island the owners have installed assorted laser skirmish games in the Fort, including some of the underground areas. During WW2 Sentosa Island became a prisoner of war camp and having such... More

You can get there by tram, which leaves you to wander around the various buildings. There are some cannons, bunkers, tunnels and military cabins. The photos and audio presentations show the situation during WWII in Singapore. BUT: The exhibition is bad-maintained and way too overpriced (12 SGD / adult). We did not enjoy our stay at Fort Siloso at all...... More

You can ride the Tram or the bus so you don't have to walk all the way there. It's very cool, a lot of history in this place. Recommended to all.

A fantastic place to learn about the history of Singapore especially during the Japanese occupation in the 1940s...bring your kids there to help them appreciate the sacrifices made by our earlier generations to ensure a secure future for us today...
