Haw Par Villa Picture

Haw Par Villa, Singapore.
I haven't been to the park since I was in primary school. It used to be streaming with visitors and there were amusement rides and the dragon boat ride featuring the 10 Courts of Hell.

Haw Par Villa is a Chinese Mythology theme park in Singapore.

The park contains over 1,000 statues and 150 giant dioramas depicting scenes from Chinese folklore, legends, history, and illustrating various aspects of Confucianism. These include The Laughing Buddha, The Goddess of Mercy, The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and most famously The Ten Courts of Hell, a depiction of a gruesome underworld of tortures and torments set in the mouth of a 60-meter-long dragon (sadly this have been replaced due to wear & tear and roof leaks).

Entry to the park has been free since 1996, while previously a S$16 entrance fee was charged and a Chinese Heritage Centre has been constructed within its grounds.
