释义

名词

拥有万金油大王之称的胡文虎所建造的新加坡旅游景点之一。

DEFINITION

Noun

One of Singapore’s tourist attractions built by Aw Boon Haw, the founder of Tiger Balm.

由来

  • 1937年落成的虎豹别墅,由万金油企业家胡文虎为弟弟胡文豹建造。胡文豹于1942年移居缅甸仰光,并在1944年逝世。
  • 二战后,胡文虎从香港回到新加坡,将原本的花园进行重建。胡文虎在1954年逝世,其侄儿胡清才(Aw Cheng Chye)继续为花园进行改造,其中增加了相扑力士与泰国舞者等塑像。胡清才在1971年逝世后,胡家没有继续改造花园。
  • 到了1985年,新加坡政府通过土地征收法(Land Acquisitions Act)接手管理虎豹别墅。新加坡旅游促进局(现今为新加坡旅游局)于1986年提供给国际主题乐园有关公司 (International Theme Parks Ltd, ITP) 租用,之后发展为主题乐园。1990年重新开幕。
  • 2015年,旅游局委任“Journeys”旅游公司,负责经营与管理虎豹别墅。

ETYMOLOGY

  • Completed in 1937, Haw Par Villa was built by Aw Boon Haw, the founder of Tiger Balm for his younger brother, Aw Boon Par. Aw Boon Par moved to Yangon, Myanmar in 1942, and passed away in 1944.
  • After the Second World War, Aw Boon Haw returned to Singapore from Hong Kong, and rebuilt the original garden. When Aw Boon Haw passed away in 1954, his nephew Aw Cheng Chye took over the renovation, where sculptures including a Sumo wrestler and a Thai dancer were added. After Aw Cheng Chye’s passing in 1971, the Aw family did not continue to rebuild the garden.
  • In 1985, the Singapore Government acquired the villa through the Land Acquisition Act. In 1986, the Singapore Tourist Promotion Board (now known as the Singapore Tourism Board, STB) took over the management of Haw Par Villa and leased it to International Theme Parks Ltd (ITP) to develop it as a theme park. It was reopened in 1990.
  • In 2015, STB appointed Journeys Pte. Ltd. to operate and manage Haw Par Villa.

例句

为了吸引更多访客旧地重游,虎豹别墅昨天起延长每日开放时间至晚上10时,并在每个星期五的6时30分举办两小时的“地狱之旅”导览活动,让游客在导游生动讲解下了解园内雕塑所蕴含的哲学和文化内涵。(《联合早报》,9/6/2019)

SAMPLE SENTENCE

To attract more visitors to revisit the park, Haw Par Villa has extended its daily opening hours to 10 pm starting yesterday.

相关资料

因万金油大王胡文虎的关系,虎豹别墅也称“万金油花园”。香港的虎豹别墅,同样由胡文虎建成。有别于新加坡的虎豹别墅,香港的虎豹别墅是胡氏家族的私家别墅,不对外开放,唯有别墅旁的万金油花园开放给公众参观,但这座花园之后被拆卸,2001年交给了当地政府。

RELATED INFORMATION

Haw Par Villa is also known as the “Tiger Balm Gardens” due to its connection with the founder of Tiger Balm, Aw Boon Haw. Haw Par Mansion in Hong Kong was also built by Aw Boon Haw. Unlike Haw Par Villa in Singapore, Haw Par Mansion in Hong Kong was the private mansion of the Aw family, and was not open to the public, except for the Tiger Balm Garden located beside the mansion. However, this garden was demolished thereafter, and was handed over to the local government in 2001.
