2. Explore Abandoned WWII Marsiling Bunkers

Singapore is not only clean and green, but it also has a wild side, which can be seen in Marsiling in the shape of abandoned WWII bunkers. As you pound your way through rambling jungle vines and negotiate through ankle-deep muck to discover a disused British Royal Air Force fuel reserve station built in 1942, you’ll feel like a modern-day Indiana Jones.

This huge network of subterranean tunnels was left behind from British administration in Singapore during World War II and is nestled deep into the Singaporean forest. They were utilized as fuel storage tanks by the British, although they were also briefly held by the Japanese until Singapore won independence.

Get up close and personal with nature in its entirety as you wade through ankle-deep mud and avoid creepy crawlies and trek deep into a forest without demarcated walking trails with the help of an experienced guide.

  • From S$150 for 5 hours
