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.

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.

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

The park, originally called Tiger Balm Gardens, was built in 1937 by the Burmese-Chinese brothers Aw Boon Haw and Aw Boon Par, the developers of Tiger Balm, as a venue for teaching traditional Chinese values. They moved their business from Burma to Singapore in 1926 and purchased the site in 1935.
