Don't let history repeats itself, like the KTM railway/station, hardly got crowds before it was demolish and then, when it's about, full of people just to get the photos. It's free admission and so, grab the chance!

I was at Haw Par Villa yesterday whole day, before the gate opens till 7pm for time lapse and video clips. The color are still very nice and they did maintenance on it. During weekdays, it's quite empty and it's good for any kind of photography. The place still have resting points and trees providing shapes but you still gets burn if you into photography. Only bad is that not much shelter if rains, try to read weather forecast before going. Only weekend, they open the other toilet at the rear and so, you need to walk back to the first one during weekdays.

Maybe I might be back for just photography only and hopes, got a fine weather on it. :D

Don't go there if you're sensitive to other-worldly presences and are spooked by them

It is a pity as this was once an attraction in the 50 & 60. The problem is lack of parking.

I agree totally ; popped by there and was really surprised by that the statues are generally still well maintained after so many years.

The Hell exhibit still gave me a bit of creeps haha.
Now older Liao, kinda appreciate it differently and really hope it doesn't disappear to become a condo one day.

One recommendation is to go to the Botanical gardens after Haw Par Villa. Nearby and the scenery there is refreshing.

I used hand held twilight from rx100. Comes out nicely. I also use pj660 for some video clips. Got people over there re painting some of the display. Some of it still bright in colors.
