Overview
Stroll the grounds of Singapore’s Haw Par Villa with a licensed guide on a 2.5-hour walking tour, and marvel at the whimsical landscape. Explore the world's only park of Chinese mythology, and learn about the literature and philosophy of Asia.
What to Expect
Immerse yourself in the magical landscapes of the Haw Par Villa (Tiger Balm Gardens) theme park on Pasir Panjang Road, Singapore, and see more than 1,000 statues and 150 giant dioramas depicting scenes from Chinese mythology and folklore.

Built in 1937, Haw Par Villa is the brainchild of billionaire philanthropist, Aw Boon Haw. Among his achievements, Aw Boon Haw gave the world Tiger Balm. Enter the tiger’s den to take in illustrations of Confucianism.

Learn about the literature, philosophy and history of Asia as you wander past ever-more eccentric vistas. Discover how in every Chinese there is a little Indian. Make sense of Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism, seamlessly woven into the poetry of the garden.

Steeped in symbolism, the walk tells the ageless story of good over evil, the struggle between modernity and tradition, and the inevitability of death. Find your Tao in this life. As the ancient Chinese proverb says, “To catch the cub, you have to enter the tiger’s den.”
