Opium Hill

By | September 9, 2016

Also known as the Opium Hill, Bukit Chandu, Singapore is a site where tourists can get a deep insight into the tumultuous history of Singapore.

Bukit Chandu is primarily known for Reflections at Bukit Chandu, an interpretative war center that commemorates the sacrifice of countless warriors who chose death over dishonor and fought for their country till the end.

Bukit Chandu is a trip down memory lane, to February 1942 when 1,400 soldiers of the Malay Regiment stood up against 13,000 Japanese soldiers to defend the western sector of Singapore during the second world war.

Bukit Chandu has many galleries that have photographs, dates, maps and other information about life in the Malay Regiment, and the Defense of Malaya. A true delight for historians, Bukit Chandu takes you back to the Battle of Pasir Panjang as you ponder about the ramifications of war.

Reflections at Bukit Chandu, Singapore was opened in February 2002 by the then Minister of Defense. A visit to this attraction of Singapore will remind you of the heroes of war of your own country, and you’re sure to have a strange nostalgic feeling.

For a slight dose of patriotism, do not miss a visit to Bukit Chandu when you travel to Singapore this time around. It’ll be a truly heart-wrenching experience.

The center at Bukit Chandu is open between 9 am and 5 pm from Tuesdays to Sundays. Admission charges are SGD 2 for adults and SGD 1 for students and senior citizens.
