About half an hour metro ride away from the main attractions and secluded from any other tourist sites you can find Haw Par Villa. If you know of the product Tiger Balm, this is quite an interesting place to visit to learn about its history...More

Haw Par Villa (formerly Tiger Balm Gardens) is a curious place! You definitely feel the air of yesteryear as you stroll through the multi-level gardens and discover the fables that inspire these art pieces. Of particular note is the wild and gruesome Gates of Hell!...More

Quirky and unique to Singapore; you can't possibly find this anywhere else. We went on a night walking tour, which made the experience so much better. The park is free. Tour incurs additional cost, but it was awesome. There's a lot of walking, though.

The giant statues greet you before you’ve even walked in. Very colourful old Chinese characters are dotted around the entrance. We went straight to the courts of hell tunnel which is interesting. There are descriptions of each court of hell and what the sins are...More

This place is like the lovechild of a mini-golf course, a theme park, and Buddhist teachings with random animals and a Statue of Liberty thrown in. If you like kitsch, Buddhism, or just seeing things that don't exist elsewhere, this is a must-visit for your...More

Great for tourists to get an insight into Chinese culture and mythology in a quirky historical park. And I highly recommend the 10am or 4pm guided tour - really brings things to life. There’s nothing like this anywhere else!

Anything that gives you an insight into another culture is always worthwhile. We got the mrt train, Haw Par is close by. There are similar (and smaller) theme parks dotted around Asia. Some of the features here are not suitable for young children as they...More
