Merlion - Review

The Merlion is in the Merlion Park near the Singapore CBD and is a renowned tourist spot in Singapore. The original name of Singapore, ‘Singapura’ is represented by the lion head. Singapura means the lion city. Tourists will definitely have a good time here as this place is lined with bars and restaurants. You can alsowalk along and take in the sea breeze. This is a good place for tourists who love photography. Without taking a photo at the Merlion, the Singapore trip is incomplete. Early in the morning this place is crowded with tourists, posing for the camera. They also put up a majestic laser show with the Merlion in the background long with an amazing light show at sunset. You can go for a boat ride too, encircling the park’s main attraction.

Merlion is one of the attractions in Singapore itinerary 5 days. Must visit this awesome attraction.

Merlion, Singapore Reviews

  • I've seen pictures. I've heard stories. It was a different experience when in real. It's more than just a statue. It's historical and memorable. One of the most beautiful view and time I've spent. Be with your loved one and it'll be one of the greatest memories you'll have in your timeline.

  • A must visit place in Singapore. It is near by Marina Bay sands . This is a mythological animal with head of lion and body of mermaid . It represents Singapore magnificently and when combined with light show at night it is a soothing vision to eyes. Very beautiful place with small shops and cafe surrounding it.

  • One of the best places in Singapore. Best views of the city during evening shows and late nights. Enjoyed spending time especially during late nights with awesome view.

  • There are some stunning photos on the net and it was good to see, but if you are tight for time, don’t panic if you miss it. However, if you combine seeing the Merlion Statue with the light show on Marina Bay (most nights at 8pm and 9pm - 15 minute show) ...then it’s well worth it!

  • This must be an icon of Singapore. You are in Singapore if you have successfully landed here. This is really nice spot to take photos. Many tourist come here.
