HTMi (Singapore) – A fascinating experience to Haw Par Villa

The students of HTMi (Singapore) were privileged to embark on an unforgettable journey to none other than the legendary Haw Par Villa, that is known for its rich Chinese culture and mythology.

Haw Par Villa is famous for its depictions of the ancient Chinese folklore that is home to over 1000 statues depicting surreal scenes from legendary works of ancient literature.

Our students at HTMi (Singapore) were thrilled and took this opportunity to learn and understand the various ancestral values and culture this study trip had to offer.

We at HTMi (Singapore) believe that apart from providing students their educational needs, the sensory, physical and social aspects of field trips enrich one’s learning experience that may inspire our students to continuously strive for excellence, both academically and professionally.
