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

  • Definitely a place to visit when you are in Singapore. Stay there for the sound and light show. Better to be on the side of marina bay sands hotel to enjoy the sound and light show. There are some awesome places to eat at Merlion, try them for sure, and there is Starbucks coffee as well !

  • An iconic symbol of Singapore! The Merlion is a must-see tourist attraction if you happen to be in Singapore. Just beware that it can be very crowded at times so be sure to go early for good pictures!

  • It’s kind of strange, but it’s an internationally known icon for the city-state that beat the odds. Quite the tourist attraction. I recommend going at night to see the light show across the bay - stunning!

  • Its a must visit place in Singapore 🇸🇬.. Merlion statue is symbol of Singapore. And u will get an amazing view of all the buildings near by including the marina bay sands hotel. The light show of marina bay from the edge of this river is unbeatable. U have to just relax here and the light show will refresh u. Its clean area. U will get place to sit and enjoy near the river edge. Sometimes u will get free wifi connectivity also 😜here..

  • The landmark of Singapore is located opposite Marina Bay Sands. It is always crowded with tourist but the view is worth it. I would recommend visiting in the evening where it is not too hot and you can enjoy dinner and evening walk.
