Fort Siloso is Singapore's only well-preserved coastal fort that served as part of the country's defences. The on-site military museum contains a treasure trove of WWII memorabilia, including coastal guns, the remains of fortified military structures and tunnels, as well as an interactive video documentary, complete with wax figures of Japanese & British soldiers at the Surrender Chambers.
The word “siloso" is actually derived from a Malayan word meaning "rock".
