Lead us into the night.

Who is this scary looking man out there???
He is our tour guide of the night.

This journey will take you on a spine tingling trip through the less known paths on the island that is commonly known as Sentosa. Hear about Sentosa’s haunting and history, this tour will roll through the western part of Sentosa, where the most chilling paths are located.

The guides will take you on an adventure through the night and supported by our safety guides, you are safe in our hands.

Re-live Sentosa’s beginnings by visiting the magnificent gun emplacements, the coastal trail and other landmarks such as the orginal site of the Dragon’s Teeth Gate. The tour experience is based on well-researched facts, myths, legends and first-hand accounts from the folks who used to live on the island before it was renamed as Sentosa.

The tour guide shared with us the history behind the places that will make your hair stand. Especially it is in the late night......

Riding in the night brought back memories of my camping life where we stayed up to do night patrolling. Fun and eerie at the same time, felt like something is lurking out there.

Arriving at Mount Imbiah Battery where the remnants of British pre-World War II gun emplacement still stand today.

Upon completion of the adventure, we proceed to Coastes for a drink and light refreshment.

Time to replenish our energy loss.

We seriously have so much fun during the journey. It's a totally cool experience. Thanks Gogreen for the wonderful opportunity.
