All reviews military history world war sky walk japanese occupation gun emplacements interesting history self guided tour british army historical place tunnel complex love history interesting visit free attraction singapore history well worth the trip nice walk wax figures
The fort is extensive, make sure you approach it from the beach and take a right at the small roundabout just before the large hotel. You will see a tiled wall in front of you, head towards that and go up in the free lift...More
We went to Sentosa Island just to explore this Fort and it was definitely worth it. Be aware that there is actually much to see, with indoor exhibits providing some air conditioned relief from the brutal heat and humidity. If you are interested in military...More
Fort Siloso is a step back in time to the British colonial era. Located on the western end of Sentosa, it is very enjoyable to wander around the fortifications, view the flora and fauna, as well as visit the numerous WW2 museum exhibitions. A must...More
We didn't expect to spend as much time as we did here. We had to leave after about three hours, still not having seen everything. Our nine-year-old son LOVED it and even our 11-year-old daughter enjoyed it, even though it would not normally be her...More
Be sure to take the lift up to the Fort. You can imagine what it must have been like there during the 2nd world war. The fort consists of many buildings which detail the Japanese occupation and surrender. If you are a history buff it...More
it was one of the more unvisited sites in sentosa as compared to their other fun-filled attractions such as the sky luge and ifly, thus there wasnt a lot of people there which allowed us to proper absorb the history and atmosphere of this place....More
To start with a justifiable rant about Sentosa oil general. I hadn’t been to Sentosa since the 1980’s and would never pay to enter the island, it is a shameful stain on Singapore’s reputation, a place of animal exploitation and cruelty, no one who claims...More
Fort Siloso is an amazing visit. We spend about 3 hrs to walk both the gun and heritage trail. Take the skywalk next to Shangri-la to the fort it is faster then the old trail. Lot of interesting history and what happened during the WWII...More

Here's the cheeky option - grab the free shuttle bus from Vivo City for Shangri-La Sentossa resort hotel (goes every 20 mins) - you get onto the Island for free and Fort Siloso is at the entrance to the hotel

Hi David B,
Thank you for visiting Fort Siloso!
The Surrender Chambers within Fort Siloso is not the exact location where the surrender documents were signed. However, the Surrender Chambers house two commemorative life size wax re-enactments of two significant WW2 moments in Singapore’s history which have been on display in Sentosa since the 1970s.
The first set showed the British Surrender of Singapore under command of Gen Percival to the invading Japanese forces under Gen Yamashita on 15 Feb 1942. The surrender meeting took place in the Ford Factory in Singapore. This event marked the Fall of Singapore which was considered as an impregnable fortress of the British Empire and the impact of this surrender was felt not only by the British and Australian POWs but also the people of Singapore whose life changed and they lived the hardship of the 3 and half years of Japanese occupation rule.
The second set showed the surrender ceremony of the Japanese forces of South East Asia to the Allied forces under the Supreme Command of Lord Louis Mountbatten on 12 Sep 1945, it took place at the Municipal Building in Singapore. This event marked the moment of victory for the Allied Forces in WW2 war against the Japanese invasion of SE Asia and a relief for the people of Singapore.
These two wax re-enactments are commemorative milestones of the WW2 events in Singapore, they marked the beginning and end of a very difficult and dark period of Japanese Occupation and which changed the history of Singapore.
Cheers & hope to see you on the Island soon!

What does arvo mean? >>Suggestions for dinner on Sentosa, are there any Hawker market style places? << Malaysian Food Street. It is very busy during mealtimes though so try to go before or after. Alternatively, take the monorail to Vivocity where there are 2 food courts (Kopitiam and Food Republic) and Seam Im Food Centre (hawker centre) is across the road.
7D6N Itinerary (12 Replies)
Thanks to inputs from few forum champions, I have created 7D6N itinerary as below. Idea is to create not too hectic yet meaningful coverage to gardens/parks, Sentosa and museums. FYI, We are family of 3, couple + 10yr old kid Day 1: ========= --> Check-in, relax, Lunch --> Reach River safari by 4 pm (need to be careful on boat timing, can one book a slot or its first come first serve basis) --> start Night Safari by 8 pm Day 2: ========= --> Zoo (+breakfast with...More

Day 2 ) I think 4pm is a more realistic finshingbtime at the zoo. Assume you will be too tired to anything requiring walking afterwards. Day 4) iFly and Dolphin Island require brebooking, possiblly well in advance. Allow time to account for training and variable finish times and travel between the two places. Day 5) Avoid USS on a Sunday, the express pass won't save you - only on certain raises and only single use per ride (we make sure we on the Transformers and Mummy rides at least 3...More
