    honestly, those cultural stuff from other countries are not attracting anybody. If something big like IKEA or what there...sure alot people. haaa

    the land inside is pretty big...lots of things they can convert the place into...maybe like go kart stadium, dirt bike trails, something for the public.

    Actually i feel the outside is much nicer for photography, inside nothing much, maybe except for the pagoda. Rest of the area is like infested with mozzies, probably rats and do be careful of druggies and those of a different sexual preference than normal.

    Not recommended if you are a thrillseeker...might get injured or something bad.
    Turn it into a Shaolin School.

    People all over the world will come to learn how to finger-stand.

    What did they say? Were there any reasons given? Somehow, these authority figures are not likely to grant joe public permission to enter to take photos. I wanted to take photos of my old sec sch, cannot. Wanted to take photo of River Valley Swimming Complex, cannot. I really don't know why. Take photo from outside, also cannot.

    Anyway, regarding Tang Dynasty, last I checked (admittedly about 1 year ago), there were several huuuuge holes in the fences that you could just walk through.

    I was sceptical about the whole concept when it first opened, though. We already had the Chinese Gardens, why did we need another Chinese-themed attraction? Sure they were different, but would the tourists know the diff? And it's all fake, a replica. I sure people would want to see the real deal in China itself. It's really a humogous white elephant, and since it wasn't open for very long, I doubt many S'poreans would have much sentimental attachments to the place (I miss the Yaohan Jurong opposite more, actually).

    Decision to demolish and build something better / more useful is absolutely correct.

    No surprise it's going. If people want to see an ancient Chinese city, they'll go to the actual thing.

    Has anyone thought of turning Tang Dynasty into Tang Jurassic Park?

    No need to demolish the Tang buildings.

    Just have to put in a few mechanical Dinosaurs chasing the half-naked princesses and chamber maids around will do.

    There'll be a long queque of uncles buying tickets everyday.

    Has anyone thought of turning Tang Dynasty in a Bree Theme Park with hundreds of Bree replicas walking around posing.

    That will be a photographers' heaven.

    just like Tang Dynasty and Shaolin monks, i don't think that will qualify as a made-in-Singapore cultural asset
