Merlion Park is a popular landmark in Singapore where tourists can see the country’s famous national icon, the Merlion.
From the viewing deck at Merlion Park, tourists can see clearly Singapore’s Merlion, an eight-meter statue depicting a half-fish, half-lion creature that symbolizes both the country’s origin as a fishing village and it’s etymology. Nothing says “I have been to Singapore” better than taking a snap with the water-spouting 70-tonne statue. Aside from taking photos of the Merlion, visitors can also stay to witness the spectacular sunset at Marina Bay, or board a bumboat and see more of the attractions — like Clarke Quay and Boat Quay — that are along Singapore River.
Merlion Park is located at One Fullerton Road, Singapore.
