A visit to the Merlion Park is a MUST. This is an icon of Singapore and is ideally situated at the end of a promenade which is full of restaurants and fast food outlets offering various cuisines. We went in the afternoon and found it idea to take pictures with the sun BEHIND us. 2 Ferry operators offer very similar... More

This statue has always been a symbol associated with Singapore. I definitely recommend visiting but be warned about large tour groups and crowds on the weekends.

Its a bit overrated from a tourist point of view. But as first timers, i would suggest to just go there take a pic and focus on other attractions. Also, the history behind the status is nice to know.

Merlion itself was a little overrated but ok for a quick photo. The setting and buildings beyond were much more Interesting and hence made this a great spot. It is very touristy so you do have to wait your turn to find a space for a selfie.

This park is on one side of marina bay it is a beautiful park but the most remarkable park is the statue of the merlion that has been moved along the bay. It's has a great history and story behind him. It's a beautiful statue that is also a fountain into the bay.

I've lived in Singapore for over a year now and I do not understand the tourist fascination with the Merlion park. All the bus trips stop there, but to be honest there are much better views for those wanting to take pictures. The new foot bridge - due to open any day may help but for now I would give... More

The Merlion is a well known tourist icon of Singapore. The place is quite crowded with tourists, and all of them want to take pictures of the Merlion, and of themselves with the Merlion in the background. This place also offers a good view of the Marina Bay Sands. Its fun to walk about the place in the evening.

This is a great area to take a nice walk either in the day or evening. Be prepared for crowds though. There are numerous food stalls so you can grab some fast food, an ice cream or coffee and sit by the water, enjoying the breeze and watching the numerous boats go by . You can even catch one of...
