Kranji Heritage Trail

Complimentary guided tours were made possible with the generosity of an organisation. I got a ticket for myself, because I found the heritage in this area fascinating. It is called the Kranji Heritage Trail.

Frankly, my youth group is working on a partnership with another school to make Kolam Ayer Heritage Trail possible. So I think it won’t hurt if I expose myself to more similar activities.

Our first stop is the Kranji War Memorial. The group was blessed with fine weather, so the photos were quite ok. This is a state land and former President Inche Yusuf bin Ishak and Benjamin Henry Sheares were buried in this cemetery too.

Second stop was the Hay Dairies Farm. It was a little disappointing that AVA has prohibited public interactions with the baby goats. The kids in my group were utterly desolated upon hearing the announcement.

Last stop, Bollywood. The kueh and fig drinks were marvelous. However, the purpose of this trail was supposed to be heritage, but it appeared to have diverted to the countryside farms. There were some other places which have more historical value, but were not included. I do understand that time is tight, but seriously the farm tours can be replaced, because farm tours were being organised frequently already.
