This iconic statue can be seen from miles away when approaching Sentosa island. Once alongside it there are plenty of photo opportunities where you can get the family in the foreground.

Although this is slightly cheesy, it is worth a visit! You learn about the Merlion and get some great pictures inside its mouth!! It's brilliant as is everything in sentosa.

There is a famous story behind the MERLION but this place makes the storyline a bit cheesy and tacky. However it is nice to wonder next to and easy accessed via Umbdiah station (which i am sure i have spelt wrong!)

take a stroll after dinner up to the top. You will get great views of the surrounding area. The lights and water displays are very special. Well designed.

Entry starts with a video sharing the history of singapura. Takes just a few seconds to reach the top floor. Offers views from the head and mouth of the merlion.
