  • A lot of the singaporean residents says it is a rundown park and it will be under renovation soon but I think a lot of the major statues were still intact
  • It is a free place to roam around but I'll definitely not recommend it to very young kids
  • Chinese culture is an unfamiliar subject for me and this one is a learning experience

      My husband knows my greatest fear and that is seeing a statue be it human-size or huge up close and personal. He wanted me to overcome this fear and what better or shall I say, scarier way than to bring me to Haw Par Villa. This park really freaked the hell out of me. The place showcased over a thousand statues in all sizes and a lot of them depicted very gruesome images.

      The ten stages of


      hell was something I wouldn’t want to visit or see for the next thousand of years. It’s literally bloody scary. Not to mention there were odd statues placed all over the park like a crab with a woman’s face, a half snail half human. Of course my hubby’s favorite is that of a woman breastfeeding an old man with a little boy on the background cheering them on.

      But other than those odd and scary stuff, hubby ...


      • took a lot of nice pictures of me with the other safer or tamed looking statues.

        He took a picture of me with buddha and his kids, the car with a roaring tiger’s face, a lot of close-up shots with the pagoda looking temples. There were a lot of tiger statues that we’ve found and also monkey statues. The big buddha statues really scared me so he only took a few far shots of it.

        The sumo

        wrestler statues were also nice as well as the mermaids, and a few women statues.

        A lot of the singaporean residents says it is a rundown park and it will be under renovation soon but I think a lot of the major statues were still intact. It is a free place to roam around but I’ll definitely not recommend it to very young kids. Chinese culture is an unfamiliar subject for me and this one is a learning experience.
