The Haw Par Villa theme park, AKA the “Tiger Balm Gardens," may not be the best place for a family vacation... unless you want to spook your young children into behaving well.

This unusual destination displays statues and dioramas such as 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.

This mythological theme park originally opened in 1937 and is now also the home of the Chinese Heritage Centre.
