Yes, it's just a really large statue, BUT, at NIGHT there's a cool vibe there as it sits on the water and lights up in varying shades of color! It creates a great photo back drop for you and yours. It's walkable from the light...More

You can see the big Merlion and little Merlion from the park. The little one is cute, but potentially not worth it if crowds annoy you, gets pretty packed in the park

You go to see the Merlion, yay.......the one you see looks a little too small....thoughts of it looks bigger in the movies come to mind. Then you see the big ply board boxed off construction work and you go home.

The Merlion statue is covered under renovation. Don’t know until when. Nonetheless the Merlion Bay Area is definitely worth a look, sans Merlion statue.

Bring your camera here. The Merlion looks great, as does the backdrop, so it's a wonderful photo opportunity. A must do, if one is on a walkabout (see my YouTube) in the Lion City.

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
