Dressing up in traditional Chinese costumes

Post by agi » Sun, 23 Apr 2006 3:45 pm

Remember the good old days, with Tang Dynasty, where you could pay a fee and get dressed up in old Chinese costumes and have your photo taken?

I know it's a bit tacky, but we have Singapore first-timers going on a holiday with us at the end of this year and I thought it might be a bit of fun for them. So, is there anywhere that still does this type of thing?

Yup: in Haw Par Villa, right next to the entrance to the 10 Hells. Suitably cheezy for Singapore's bizarrest attraction (and I use that word very loosely).

Thanks for that. Gotta say we didn't go to Haw Par Villa the last time we were in Singapore, cos it was sorta "been there, done that" and nothing too exciting, but maybe we'll give it a go again.

Thanks again!


On another note, I've recently heard about Igor's - The Main Event. I love mazes. Has anyone been there? Any feedback as to whether it's worth going?

Try also the costume store - ONE COSTUME - at Aliwal Street in Little India.
