The most visited place in singaporw since it represents the main symbol of the city if not the country. Beautiful park with overpriced restaurants. You can enjoy the walk from sunset till late evening

Merlion Park was a lovely little walk on an evening after work. It has a beautiful (albeit man-made) view of Marina Bay Sands. And if you walk on to the Esplanade you get a nice view of the the Singapore skyline. There are also a few places to eat and drink. All in all a pleasant way to spend a... More

This site is remarkably popular with tourists. Certainly the views are impressive, but the Merlion itself is really nothing particularly special. Worth a look as you do a full circuit of Marina Bay.

Even with the emergence of new iconic and modern structures like Marina Sands Bay, Gardens by the Bay, etc. the Merlion Park will stay as an important landmark and major tourist attraction in this Lion City and Island State. Just like other tourists I never get tired coming back to this park everytime I visit Singapore; perhaps there must be... More

You get a great view of the merlion, a singapore icon which is a half lion half fish creature. Park is free to the public. You also have a great view of the marina bay sand hotel. You'll probably spend 5 minutes here or more depending if you're in a large group and everybody want an individual pic with the... More

I just love the statue of the Merlion.... although it can be crowded and hot.... early evening could be a bit better but the walk along the waterfront is lovely when the is a nice breeze....

I love it! The park is lovely, and the Merlion is spectacular. Be sure to go at night and during the day. Views from here are spectacular. I think it's my favorite place in Singapore!

An open park with no admission fees. Near waterfront with occasional breeze. During the day, it may be too hot for some. Suggest coming near sunset time to view both the day view and the night views. They are completely different. Plus, it is more cooling and romantic to walk along the waterfront while viewing the night views of MBS,... More
