Lighthouses have been faithfully serving as beacons of light since the 1900s, guiding ships and mariners eager to anchor at Singapore's harbours.

Starting next month, visitors will get the opportunity to view and learn about some of Singapore's historic lighthouses in the Lighthouse Trail, organised by the National Heritage Board (NHB) as part of this year's Singapore HeritageFest. Participants of the trail will have a chance to view the former Fullerton Lighthouse from the bus, sail past the Sultan Shoal lighthouse, and explore the Raffles lighthouse, which is usually out of bounds to the public.

We look back at the three lighthouses featured in the upcoming trail.
