Definitely the most fun I’ve had in Singapore for a while! I’ve never heard of Marsiling bunkers prior to this and it was better than I imagined - it was such a unique experience trekking through the rainforest off-trail and wading through the shin-deep mud in the bunkers. Major props to Scott and Catherine for making the trip extra fun with surprise challenges and games! The warm cup of Masala Chai was the perfect end to an already awesome day :)
