Haw Par Villa (Tiger Balm Gardens) was originally constructed in 1937 by "Tiger Balm King" Aw Boon Haw as a grand residence for his younger brother, Aw Boon Par, who helped create their fortune with the anagesic balm.
In English, Haw Par Villa translates as Villa of the Tiger and Leopard.
Aw Boon Haw then created an entertainment park to teach and preserve Chinese values. The park's colorful collection of over 1,000 statues and 150 giant tableaux centered around Chinese folklore, legends, history, and Confucian ideology.
The park is a bit run down and we would never bother going back however the show was fun!! but only because they made Gary dress up and be in the show with the performers!!
Sadly I cannot find the photo haha.
