If there’s one word that anyone would use to describe Haw Par Villa, it’s probably “spooky”.

And that’s the exact same word that anyone would use to describe Halloween as well.

While most Singaporeans might think of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Singapore whenever we think of Halloween-related events, here’s an alternative way to spend your spooky holiday without needing to spend hours on end queuing up to get into haunted houses in Sentosa.

This year, Haw Par Villa will be organising a series of Halloween-themed activities, and will even be opening its doors until late at night on 28 and 29 October.

Here are all the activities that Haw Par Villa has lined up for you, and here’s a spoiler alert: I’m sure there’s bound to be something for everyone, regardless of whether you’re a fan of rowdy activities or more quiet events.
