Full steam ahead in October! As we inch closer to Halloween, look out for things to do that are related to this spooktacular event once a year!


FORT SILOSO NIGHT EXPERIENCE

Fort Siloso is Singapore's only well-preserved coastal fort that served as part of the country's defences.

In this 1.5 hour tour, you’ll be led only by a kerosene lamp and a guide who’ll take you through a realistic experience resembling the dim setting that World War II soldiers had to endure themselves.
