Trace the rise and fall of great empires. Hear stories of rulers who commanded from the hill and empire-builders who were buried on its slopes. Discover the world-changing story of a humble spice. Visit graves and a colonial fort and relive one of the most important battles in history. Venture deep underground into the Battlebox, a former WWII secret underground command centre where the decision to surrender Singapore was made and gain deeper insight into Singapore’s wartime history. Don’t miss this journey back in time at the once 'Forbidden Hill'! A fantastic tour for history lovers and those wishing to see some hidden treasures in Singapore.
