Our lovely icon - The Merlion with the majestic lion head and a sexy mermaid tail overlooks the flowing Singapore river amidst the water taxi plying up and down with tourists. Admission is free here. A very good place for videoing and photo shoot of my lovely equatorial Singapore. November to January will disturb your photo scenery as it is... More

Worth walk along the river to see the Merlion and watch the people. Plenty of places to sit and have a drink whilst looking at the Singapore skyline and the tourist as well as the locals, but to be honest the inner river is more interesting. Some good views. Whilst you are there go and have a look at the... More

Its my second trip to this beautiful park on the bank of Singapore river. Facing Marina Bay Sand hotel on the other side of river, this place is very good in the evening with family.

This is one of the craziest sensations I have experienced in a while. When you witness tourists from all over the world ogling and shooting pictures like crazy of themselves with a cement red-eyed, 8.6 meter statue of a combination mermaid or fish/lion, the Merlion, famous icon of Singapore, then you have not experienced how a tourist attraction can provoke...

This park simply famous with Merlion statue which is the symbol of this country. With half lion and half fish making this statue iconic around the world. To get there was so easy, easiest way you can call a cab but I wouldn't recommend that since the fare is a bit high. Just take MRT if you want to save... More

Visit to Singapore is truly meaningless without visit to this place. The Fullerton road, Fullerton hotel are the oldest places of the Singapore. We stayed in Fullerton Hotel and the that was a memorable stay in Singapore. Hotel itself is one of the greatest place in Singapore. Merlion, Merlion Park, Laser show of Marina Bay etc are really pleasure and... More

I had visited Singapore during the Light festival and Merlion Park was a must watch on my list. I was on a 2 day business trip and did not have time to do anything else but this was a symbol of Singapore and was a very interesting place to visit during the night. The Light festival made this visit very... More

Hot and boring. The best thing is that you are near the water and at night their are good sights. Good eating nearby and a short walk to Clarke and Boat Quays.

Visited the Merlion last month and can see lot of changes have happened since I last visited. It's a good place for getting a good view of the Marina Bay,esplande and places around.Good place for taking some photos.You also get tickets for Singapore river cruise here as well as there is a nice souvenir shop.

There is nothing particularly great to see but this symbol of the Lion City is quite nice, you can walk around, take funny pictures, admire the skyline, have an ice cream/drink/dinner along the bay. Definitively a place to visit if you a visiting Singapore! I recommend it at night.
