Had a few days spare so instead of staying in Malaysia we picked up a $12.00 fare and flew to Singapore. A big cultural difference and a very clean city. So much to do and this was one of the sites we saw.

I visit this place every time I visit Singapore. Take a walk around the marina bay, which has a floating Soccer stadium, a huge giant wheel across, from which you get a complete view of Singapore. This place is rich and attracts tourist's. Best time to visit Merlion Park is after 5 in the evening.

One of our friend showed us the nightlife in Singapore and the view from the Merlion is amazing. We had great pictures too.

The views are amazing and well worth the visit. It is refreshing to walk in the spray especially on a hot day. The day we were there, there were many tourists so it was difficult to get some good photos of the lions.

It's one of the landmarks for Singapore. However there are too many tourists here and for a picture with a merlion statue I'd say it wasn't really worth spending time to get here. Singapore has loads more attractions that are worthy of a visit.

Being here 2 times, the 1st time was a couple years ago (dec, 2009). As a tourist I really love the view at evening because the lights of buildings around Merlion Park was so nice and incredible. You can see the Marina Bay Sands building and the lights of the bouts. This is really incredible view.

Merlion is the symbol of Singapore and it should be a must visit in Singapore. The iconic statue stands close to Marina Bay Sands. There are a lot of people standing and it may get a task to get a photo without anyone else appearing in the background. The place is easy to reach with various modes of transport. Do... More

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood 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 opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
