    Default ShootShootShoot Outing #12 - HAR PAR VILLA (15th August)

    it's the Famous HAR PAR VILLA... if any of you still remembers the place...

    Description
    Built in 1937 by the entrepreneurial and charismatic Aw Boon Haw for his brother Boon Par, Haw Par Villa is the quintessential house of Chinese folklore. Described by various visitors as "fascinating, delightful, bizarre and entertaining", Haw Par Villa is like no other place in the world.

    Twenty-five clusters of original statues and figurines replicate Chinese mythology characters like the Laughing Buddha and the Fu Lu Shou (Taoist deities). A must-see exhibit is the Ten Courts of Hell, featuring the ten steps of judgement before reincarnation. Literal and leaving nothing to the imagination, the statues and sets immortalise moral values and Chinese cultural heritage for generations to come.

    Time to meet
    Meet up at Harbourfront Mcdonalds at 12pm for Lunch and move off at 1pm Sharp for a 10min bus ride to Har par villa...
    Latecomers will have to find their own way to the place...

    Transport
    Bus No.188 from Harbourfront center

    Expected Duration of shooting
    2 to 3 hours

    Haw Par Villa is still very well maintained. There is a canteen inside so food and drinks are available. Hell's Gate must pay $1 to enter
