Underground in SingaporeIn the Battle Box, about 9 meters underground, I am transported back in time to February 1942.
Located in the idyllic Fort Canning Park in the city center, this underground bunker was part of the British Command Center during the Malayan Campaign in WWII, and it was in here that the decision to surrender to the Japanese was made.
In a maze of concrete corridors, rooms, and steel doors, the life-size wax models and excellent animatronics, plus visual and audio effects, enhance the experience. It gives a realistic illustration of the working conditions back then, as well as recreating the events of that period.
