It was good place to take a picture. Everybody needs the picture to remind the tour. So here is nice place for this.

I have no idea why this is an attraction, but it is close to some other sights so you will probably walk by anyway. Dont take a detour though

The Merlion is a must see in Singapore. I went there at night so the lights added to the drama and beauty of the place. Bonus for the area are the nightspots and restaurants where business and pleasure combined.

The park is nice for spending afternoon or for meeting point. You can alight for Singapore river tour. Stroll along the riverside from UOB plaza if you are using Raffles Place MRT

With marina bay sands and the waterfront, it has added value to the Merlion. The crowds are crazy a lot of people, tourist with selfie stick. Come on a day good sunshine to get a nice picture.

Definitely a must-see as you walk along the Marina. But keep in mind all the other tourists are there too, so it is very crowded. Try to go early, or at night as it is really nice with the city all lit-up in the background.

Nice skyline from both sides. You will have nice views from the helix bridge as well as from the Merlion itself. Theaters by the bay area amazing with the lights turned on at night. Must see. There is a night spectacle every evening with fire, sound and laser lights from Marina Sands. Probably the best spot is from Marina Sands,... More

I get that Merlion Park is a tourist attraction but why? I wouldn't have looked twice unless there was 2000 people standing trying to get a good picture with this. Not the best Singapore has to offer.

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.
