Believing in ghosts and supernatural entities is not a prerequisite to joining a spooky tour. Though it certainly helps to get in the Halloween spirit. From a haunted cemetery to a cursed neighbourhood and an abandoned hospital where the souls of the dead are believed to still roam, you’ll find many creepy spots in the Lion City. If you’re down to explore some historic and haunted locations, these five ghost tours in Singapore are worth joining.
Spooky Singapore: The Ghosts of Hill Fort of Canning
For three hours, the Spooky Singapore: The Ghosts of Hill Fort of Canning takes you to Singapore’s creepy locations, including old cemetery grounds, a mysterious shrine, and an eerie hill at the park of Fort Canning. Conducted by heritage guide Shanti and supernatural guide Dani, the tour features both factual stories about World War II and mythological tales about the park’s haunted dwellings. Price is S$100 per person.
Creepy Tales of Singapore Tour
You may not know it, but there are plenty of ghosts in Singapore. At least, that’s what you’ll think of after finishing the Creepy Tales of Singapore Tour. The family-friendly activity takes you to a secluded bridge where many soldiers have died during World War II. At the end of the four-hour tour, you’ll visit one of the world's largest Chinese cemeteries where over 100,000 tombs are located. Price is S$100 per person.
Haw Pa Villa Walking Tour
If you want to learn about the afterlife, join the Haw Pa Villa Walking Tour. The two-hour tour lets you discover the many perspectives of various religions on life after death. There’s a visual representation of the underworld called 10 Courts of Hell, and a sneak peek of a new attraction called Hell’s Museum. Only guests 7 and up are allowed to join the tour. Price is S$18 per person.
Singapore Famous Murder and Ghost Story Tour
Haunted neighbourhoods make for the best and creepiest adventures. The four-hour Singapore Famous Murder and Ghost Story Tour takes you to a haunted town where a horrifying murder in the 1980s took place. Next, you’ll discover the skin-crawling stories of the Old Changi Hospital as you visit the abandoned location. Price is S$150 per person.
Chinatown Murders Gaming Tour
If you prefer an immersive mystery tour, sign up for the Chinatown Murders Gaming Tour. The activity takes you to an outdoor location called Chinatown where a “serial killer is on the loose.” Together with other players, you must solve puzzles to identify the serial killer of the game. The two-hour game is suitable for guests aged 7 and above. Price is S$50 for adults and S$45 for children and senior citizens.
