What To Expect

Take the road less travelled with guides who are experts of the city. The brainchild of one military historian and several precocious enfants terribles of Singapore's heritage-education scene, be thoroughly entertained as you visit cultural and historical enclaves, while affable researcher-guides, through skillful storytelling and the use of archival images, regale you with juicy insights to local society and traditions.

“The sea of bitterness has no bounds; repent and you will reach the shore.” The consequences of doing good or evil unfold not just in life, but after death… or so believed Aw Boon Haw – millionaire philanthropist, marketing extraordinaire and brainchild behind the famed ointment Tiger Balm. No wonder his grandest creation, the 80-year-old Tiger Balm Garden (known today as Haw Par Villa), is replete with sculptures on death and the afterlife. Now, see the park in a new light – after dark, if you dare! Learn how death stalked the Aw family, and what Boon Haw did to confront his mortality. Get a sneak preview of the upcoming “Hell's Museum”, with perspectives of the afterlife across various religions. Step into the infamous 10 Courts of Hell to see what will get you dismembered and drowned in a pool of blood. And we'll show you how some Singaporeans communicate with the afterlife. We promise you'll never see dying – and living – in the same way again. Hell no! Never again.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximize your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What are the cancellation and refund policies?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.
