This is the most iconic symbol of Singapore in my own opinion, others are just a copy cat and a new marketing strategy.

It IS the Singapore Merlion. It is smaller than the Merlion in Sentosa. Has a nice viewing bay to see Marina Bay Sands and one can walk up to Esplanade.

Must visit at Sentosa park. Very enjoyable. And theres a light show in the night. Must see. They give a nice souvenir at the end as well.

Lots of tourist around. But beautiful place overlooking the bay. Just hang around look at the view or take a cruise of the river and bay area.

Not a very promising place, but has a good feeler when you are at this place. There is a cool breeze, peaceful, offers you a cruise ride. Being a nation symbol for Singapore, its a nice place to take some clicks here.

Came here today with my 3 year old son after visiting the nearby Asian Civilisations Museum. Being a Sunday it was just insanely busy with people everywhere snapping pictures. Yes it's a symbol of Singapore, but I'm not sure it's anything really spectacular. I recommend...More

The one which is situated in Merlion is the Mumma Merlion. One can have a bum boat ride in the river for the better view of Merlion.

Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the
traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to
dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is
the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a
world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars,
and other attractions all geared towards pure
entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands
provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo

Hi! We're planning to go to in Merlion Park, can you help us how to get there? We are from Philippines and we don't know if we should go to merlion right after we arrived in the airport in the morning carrying our luggage since the check-in time is 2pm or should we go to our accommodation first? By the way, our accommodation is located in chinatown. Hope you can help us to decide. Thank you in advance.

I heard that Merlion Park was closed for maintenance. I am planning my visit next week. Is that the right time?

I have no knowledge about any renovations but you can glance the park from the back of the Marina Bay sands Hotel and you can make the very enjoyable walk towards the park that 8s fantastic even if you don't access the park... More
