Do you know there is a Japanese cemetery which was originally started by a brothel owner for his working girls? It is the largest in Southeast Asia and the burial ground of Singapore's early Japanese community. As we stroll around the cemetery, hear stories about some of the more illustrious personalities buried there.
Like to see what Singapore was like in the 1960's, then this is the tour for you. We will visit the 'Last Kampong', Punggol to see one of the most coveted HDB estates on the island and finally we will stop at the famous 'Bicycle Cafe' right in the Seletar airbase.
