Interesting place to visit off the beaten track in Singapore. We caught the bus out & MRT back into the main city. The 10 Stages in the Court of Hell were confronting but a great way to compare religions and beliefs. Our 9yo daughter found...More

Of interest from an historical and cultural perspective. Free to enter. Next to the MRT so easy to get to. Fascinating sculptures depicting Chinese culture and stories as well as other things that once surrounded the villa that no longer exists. Once close to the...More

A quick MRT trip takes you right to the main entrance of the park. This free attraction is worth the visit to explore a quirky part of Singapore's history.

This is not a theme park or a cultural exploration but for us westerners a story that can catch the imagination. There is nothing arty about this place. If we don’t continue to visit it will be lost to us and I think it’s worth...More

If you want a little bit of History, go and visit Haw Par Villa. Interesting way of showing how to torture and kill people when the have sinned but also what they used to believe in. Should definitely include this while you're in Singapore

It's free; it's fantastic. Few Singaporeans visit it these days and it's their loss. While it has seen better days it is still a must see attraction. Absolutely unique and totally worth a visit.

This place is really weird, but you can take all kinds of crazy and cool photos here with some very unusual, colorful statues. The place is right next to the MRT station, so make this a quick stop on your trip for its uniqueness, free...More

This Chinese themed park was back in the days (1990s) one of the iconic parks in Singapore. I remember childhood days at this park that was generally overcrowded and a little weird. The park still retains it quirky nature but is now a little forgotten....More
