Your visit at Singapore wouldn't be complete without the iconic Merlion. It can be quite crowded but you can always find a nice spot to take pictures with the Merlion ;) Getting there, exit to Raffles station, then turn right. Then you will see the iconic Fullerton hotel, cross the bridge. Then go through the tunnel to cross the road.... More

you can't tour Singapore without stopping here, a place that offers grand views of the Singapore River and the backdrop of awesome buildings, including the incredible Marine Bay Sands Hotel that looks like a boat is resting on 3 massive pilings. The main attraction is the national icon, the 1/2 fish and 1/2 lion fountain. The body symbolizes Singapore's humble... More

You can spend around 2 hrs. Preferably evening time is good as you can watch the area around in day light and in the night. Perfect place to spend quality time.

I came here both during the day and night, and it is much more spectacular at night when you have the Merlion gushing waterfront of its mouth with the lights of the skyline behind it. You also get an excellent view of both the Marina Bay Sands complex and the Singapore Flyer from the park, just be mindful of the... More

Went there on a weekday morning. The morning crowd was already there posing for their photos and viewing the waterfront views. Pretty warm but quite breezy. From here, you can stroll along the waterfront and if hungry, can go to nearby waterfront food outlets or the eateries in Esplanade.

We've been there twice, once during daytime and once in the evening. Both occasions many tourists and almost impossible to take pictures without catching other people in the picture.

My husband I were very disappointed when we visited the park as the Merlion has no water coming out of its mouth. :(

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.
