Merlion, Singapore Reviews

  • Iconic place of Singapore. If you are visiting Singapore you have to come here and click a picture. The best place of Singapore with many more attractions nearby such as esplanade, marina bay sands, garden by the bay, helix bridge, marina bay shopping centre, Singapore flyer and many more. Visit the place to have a full enjoyment of Singapore.

  • Arguably the best vantage point in Singapore. Most of Singapore's iconic landmarks in the one place. Great place for photos day or night. Side note: check for renovation work updates online, as occasionally the Merlion may be covered in scaffolding for renovation work.

  • Awesome place to visit, have to walk a bit to reach this place. Evening visit recommend. From here you can spot many iconic structures of Singapore that you have already seen through other mediums. Recommended for a visit!!!!!

  • It's the iconic merlion! Also well lit during the night if you want photo of with this mythical beast. I don't believe this is the only one in Singapore as one diagram seems to suggest

  • Come for the icon of Singapore. Have fun posing with it but don't forget there is the merlion "child" at the garden. Of course remember there are also nice architecture around the bay.
