tour details

“When a tiger dies, it leaves its skin. When a man dies, he leaves his name.” Enter the tiger’s den. Take an unforgettable magical journey through the whimsical landscape of Haw Par Villa (aka Tiger Balm Garden). Built in 1937, it is the world’s only eclectic Chinese mythological park of its kind, the brainchild of Aw Boon Haw – billionaire philanthropist and marketer extraordinaire – who gave us the famed Tiger Balm. Discover Asia – by walking through these seemingly eccentric and even bizzare vistas, or be surprised that in every Chinese, there is a little Indian. Make sense of the tapestry of Taosim, Buddhism, and Confucianism seamlessly woven into the poetry of the garden. Steeped in symbolism and philosophy, this walk tells the ageless story of good over evil, the struggle between modernity and tradition and the inevitability of death. To find your Tao in this life, join us in the journey. As the ancient Chinese proverb says, “To catch the cub, you have to enter the tiger’s den.”
