Witness one world's most bizarre statues at Merlion Park, famed for its figure of a half lion, half fish shooting water from its mouth in a proud arc. Built in 1964, the 9 m (30 ft) statue now represents one of Singapore's symbols. A smaller statue--the fish-lion's baby--can also be found nearby. The baby statue offers a similar photo opportunity with a fraction of the crowds. After you've taken some photos, turn your gaze around to appreciate sweeping views of the waterfront. Put Merlion Park into our Singapore visit website to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Singapore.

Merlion Park reviews
Since it's a tourist attraction, expect it to be crowded. It has an amazing view but the climate is warm and humid so be prepared. We liked the view so much and it's very instagram worthy.

Very nice place to have some peaceful time, try visiting during peak hours and evenings. We will see lot of tourists enjoying the sea view. Nice food and drinks options as we have many restaurants.

I went there on the evening saturday . Good vibes , good weather. There is a light show at 7.00 pm I really enjoy walking around , taking photo . Singapore is a good place , we always feel safe and easy to go anywhere .
The atmosphere over here is mind blowing. You will feel awesome here standing near the Merlion statue. The view is great on all sides with Esplanade theatre, Marina bay and tall buildings. The night view is mesmerizing as well. I visited 2 times - during day and night to enjoy the place to its fullest. Fully recommend to be visited if you are in Singapore.
