Descend into the 18 levels of hell

Been to hell and back before? And if we told you that it is possible would you believe us? Yeah sure we’ve all been through “hell” before. Those who performed time in the armed services might tell you of ‘hell week’. Those going through their finals (exams) will share with you their weeks of ‘hell’ swoting for it. And then there are those at work who might swear that the week they just had was like ‘hell on earth’…

But today we are not talking about these metaphorical forms of hell.

We are referring to a place in our little red dot where you can get a good preview of what it would be like to be a soul that has been banished to this supposed pit of eternal suffering in the afterlife. At least from the view of the ancient Chinese…

And none other than at the Haw Par Villa will you find the portal to this surreal world. One where you will be fortunately just an observer. And hopefully you will come out all wiser about the virtues of being a good person. Aside from avoiding being put through eons of torture… there are true moral lessons to be learnt too.

And so we continue finally onto this next instalment of our introductions to the sights of Singapore. Interested to know more? Well click on the above link and be hyperlooped there. You’d wish this was not an escape game if you were ever to be stuck there… the only upside? It’s free.

Have you experience anything like this anywhere else in the world?

  1. I remember when I was a kid, during Chinese New Year when my dad had 5 days off from work, one of the activities was going to the Tiger Balm Garden. All the murals depicted how people suffered in hell. The greatest punishment was going to the 18th level hell.
