If you thought Haw Par Villa was spooky in the day, wait till you visit it at night. And now that the park has recently extended its opening hours until 10pm, you’ll have plenty of chances for eerie adventures… at night. What is it like wandering after dark through the 82-year-old park that’s home to about 1,000 of the most bizarre hand-painted statues and dioramas like the gory Ten Courts of Hell? Everything here is inspired by Buddhism, Taoism, Chinese folklore… and quite possibly, scaring the bejesus out of every child who visits? For the uninitiated, you probably didn’t grow up with parents taking you to Singapore’s OG theme park that was popular back in the 80's. Seriously, it was the place to visit for families to chill over the weekend, especially parents who wanted to take a walk through Hell to show their kids what would happen if they misbehaved.
