Although the area where the surrender took place are closed for renovations at the moment, the rest of the Fort is still open for inspection. Fairly interesting displays explaining the purpose of the Fort and the Fall of Singapore. We spent an hour or so here.

Siloso was one of the string of forts that guarded the seaward approaches to Fortress Singapore at the start of World War II, and it's the only one that survives fully intact. For military buffs or students of World War II history, this is one to go out of your way to see. It's very easy to get there using... More

Visited Fort Siloso recently via the Nature Skywalk. The Nature Skywalk is highly recommended, as it offers very great views of the Singapore landscape around Sentosa. There were only few people on the Skywalk unlike many other crowded areas in Sentosa. Perched among trees, you can enjoy the cooling breeze and nature away from commercialised areas in Sentosa. The end... More

I wish we'd allowed more time for this it needs a couple of hours not just the half hour we had. We will definitely be going back to explore it further. Set in jungle on the far west of the island accessible via the cable car and then a really lovely skywalk. The majority of the fort is free. The... More

There's two ways of accessing the fort, either straight down the road, or from the sky bridge. The sky bridge is a great entrance as it shows the challenges they had to overcome to defend the island. It also gives you the best free view you'll ever get of both the city and the Malacca Straits. But not to be... More

One of the few parts of Sentosa that haven't been covered with hotels, resorts and retail outlets. The story of the defense and fall of Singapore is told very well. Being in-situ adds a lot of poignancy and reality to it. The new bits are sensitively done and make it even more worthwhile. Definitely the best thing on the island,... More

Getting there was easy with free tram and bus services. Was not sure what to expect. Great bridge from a high tower to get there. Saw a few anti ship guns. There were tunnels below. The place is used mainly for playing shoot up games which looked like fun.

A really scenic tour with well spoken and knowledgable tour guides. There is a lot of history to this area and it is amazing to walk through an area with a guide to give you a deeper insight into how things worked back in the day.

On my places to visit when I was in Singapore this time and well worth it. A lift takes you up a very tall tower, with great views around, to a high metal walk way which leads into the fort. Very informative and well maintained, with many of the battery guns restored and in place. Loads to look at and... More

Quite an intriguing part of WWII history especially if you live on the other side of the world. The fort was set up so as to protect the mainland which is quite logical however the invasion didn't come from the sea. The details and development are quite interesting. I definitely recommend taking a guided tour .
