I have been here so many times over the years but if you visit Sentosa then why not, lovely views from the mouth and then the head of the Merlion and a wee film telling you all about how the Merlion came about........some of it corny but I think it is well worth a visit :)

It is good to see from outside. Not much to see anything from inside or even from top. There is a small show on screen giving some history of Singapore. The view from top is not much good. It's good to take some snaps from outside.

I will keep saying this. For any views like this, please visit in the evenings. The view is astonishing. Don't waste your time visiting at night because all you see are just lights everywhere.

We liked this attraction it is not exciting but interesting never the less and gives information about the story of the Merlion. You take a lift up to the top and can look out from inside the mouth and then climb up to the top and look out from there as well.

The tower is a good spot for photograph. There is a very nice museum inside with the highlights of the Merlin story. As every attraction in singapore you can indulge with a souvenir when you are exiting the tower. Nice experience

The Merlion on Sentosa is huge and they display different colored lights on it at night, so it changes from multicoloured to blue then red, etc its great.

If you have visited the real Merlion and merlion park at bay area, you can skip this one. Only thing worth is that you can go on top and get your pictures clicked by professionals standing in the mouth of Merlion. There is a small museum kind of thing before going inside the merlion. They also give you coins to... More

Huge but without the water coming out of mouth. Nothing great to write after you have witnessed main Merlion at Singapore at night.

Iconic for Singapore. Extremely helpful lady in lower shop looked after my bike while I did the tour. Quite light hearted exhibit as you go through and would be good for the kids. Worth a look.
