Personally, I don't think Kranji War Memorial should be a tourist attraction, so I disagree with the Singapore Tourism Board on this one. Dedicated to those who gave their life in service during the war, as well as those innocents who lost theirs, Kranji War Memorial is a sacred and peaceful place.

Beautifully preseved and maintained, the Kranji War Memorial is filled with various tributes to those lives. Each item has its significance, its layout has meaning. The centerpiece is the War Memorial Building, with its design a tribute to the Army, Navy and Air Force, and filled with Memorial Walls.

Despite the religious Christian imagery present at the Kranji War Memorial, it is actually a multi-religious place. Here are the resting places of men and women of different faiths, be it Christian, Hindu, or Buddhist.

The Kranji War Memorial is in a rather remote location, so taking a cab, or driving, is advised. Public transport to Kranji War Memorial is troublesome and time consuming.

If you're planning a visit, do note that while admission is free, you really only need less than 1 hour here. Also, there are no bathroom facilities or restaurants at the Kranji War Memorial, so plan ahead. It's open daily from 7am to 6pm, but visiting earlier in the day is recommended. And be respectful!
