Singapore is firming up as one of the first overseas destinations that Australian’s will be able to visit once travel restrictions ease, and despite the city boasting a heaving population of five million people above ground – there are also adventures underground where you can completely disappear from sight and discover an entirely new side to the city-state
If you’re the type of person that thirsts for lesser-known or unique tours, an adventure trek into the Marsiling Bunkers right on the border with Malaysia involves an adrenaline and claustrophobia-inducing experience that shouldn’t be missed.
This sprawling maze of underground tunnels are tucked deep into the Singaporean jungle and were leftover from British rule during World War II. They were used by the British as fuel storage depots, but were also temporarily occupied by the Japanese until Singapore gained independence.
Beyond Expeditions Singapore now trek guests through the forest to a tiny, hidden porthole, from where they can then descend into an underground tunnel for a full day of exploring.
Trek through ankle-high, mud, tight squeezes and come across thousands of giant tropical geckos. This unique tour will show you a side of Singapore you won’t find anywhere else on the island.
