My foreign friend and I, a local, had a great time touring Haw Par Villa with our wonderful guide Carol! She was interactive and friendly, we learnt a lot from her, be it the history of the villa to the stories behind the sculptures. It...More

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!

One of the mysterious unique attraction that everyone must at least go once, even singaporean, to see all the different statues and stories behind each of them. Great place to take pictures there. Free Entry for everyone. A must to bring an bottle of water...More

Very easy to get here, it's just outside of Haw Par Villa MRT station and it's free! Everything you see here looks strange, and maybe a bit scary. The figures here represent the old Chinese folklore. I wouldn't say it's a must see if you're...More

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.
