Cultured Leopard, Rising Tiger Tour: Finding Your Tao in Haw Par Villa

“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 the Tiger Balm Garden, known today as Haw Par Villa. Built in 1937, it is Singapore’s largest outdoor art gallery, the creation of Aw Boon Haw – millionaire philanthropist and marketing extraordinaire – the man who gave us the famed ointment Tiger Balm. Make sense of the tapestry of Taoism, 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. As the ancient Chinese proverb says, “To catch the cub, you have to enter the tiger’s den.”
