History of Singapore

You probably won't find anything about the "Battle of Bukit Chandu" in a tourist guide, so I'm glad that I have people here in Singapore, that put a lot of effort into bringing the country and it's history closer to me.

The Battle of Bukit Chandu was one of many, taking place when the Japanese invaded Singapore during World War II. However this battle is special to the Malay, cause they fought with their bare hands until the very end and suffered a lot of casualties.

If you want to know more about the history of Singapore, I highly recommend visiting Changi Prison Museum and the place where the battle of Bukit Chandu took place.
