I really enjoyed revisiting this place. It had been 😕 42 yrs since I last saw it and a lot of the old exhibits are still there. It is very well maintained and so tidy as is all of Singapore. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Good place to visit with family. This theme park has interesting statues and giant dioramas showing Chinese mythology. Has some references of tiger balm owners as well. Good place to take kids especially.

It’s a sad shadow of its former self and one wonders how much longer it will exist. Everything could do with a fresh coat of paint and a good clean up - lots of stagnant water so watch out for mosquitoes
