It's a bit of a walk from the beach to get up to Siloso. Take the tram up. Once you get there is a nice place for a view and pictures of the historic old cannons being used. There's an indoor laser tag skirmish which was a blast for my 7 year old son!

A tour of Fort Siloso is a must for history buffs. Located in the Western most corner of Sentosa Island, Fort Siloso offers an engaging glimpse of the military history of Singapore up to and including the Japanese occupation in the second world war. The fort is quiet and mostly outdoors and offers kids the chance to explore tunnels and... More

This is especially interesting for the British who can see what our soldiers faced when they were posted here. For Singaporeans, this is a very important place showing how their city developed, and why they wanted independence. Other nationalities will find it a useful introduction to Singapore’s past. When this was an actual fort, life was tough. During your visit... More

Fort silso lends a historical touch to Singapore's otherwise modern and developed attractions, fort silso is ideal for learning and exploring Singapore's history, studying how prisoners were kept and how the army guarded the city from the fort. Our best rememberance was in fact sitting outside the fort on a bench and having our snacks as the cool wind blew.... More

If only more people came here instead of rushing off to some of the other attractions on the islands. Very informative and gives you an idea of what went on during the war. It seems it's so much easier just to forget. Spend a few hours to honour the memories of those brave young men

Fort Siloso contains a great historical record of the history of Singapore as a military base in general and the occupation of Singapore by the Japanese during World War II in particular. Of particular interest are the displays which chronicle the day to day life of the Singaporeans when Singapore was occupied by the Japanese The entry cost is $12... More

It is worth visiting and to get a tour of the tunnel A. It is rather run down because it is being rented out to a commercial outfit - a pity. Wished the Sentosa administration would do more for it. Really historic and wished I had visited earlier. It's hot so bring lots of water.
