Merlion Park, Singapore

4.2
#11 of 1,099 in Things to do in Singapore
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.

  • คนเยอะมาก เต็มไปด้วยนักท่องเที่ยวมากมาย ทุกคนดูมีความสุขที่ได้ถ่ายรูปกับเมอไลออน เดินทางมาที่นี่สะดวกด้วยรถไฟฟ้า มีทางเดินริมอ่าว ข้ามสะพาน Helix Bridge ยาวไปจนถึง Marina Bay Sand หากมาตอนเย็นๆ อากาศจะไม่ร้อนมาก แต่คนเยอะ ถ้าเป็นช่วงหัวค่ำ คนจะน้อยลง เดินถ่ายรูปยามค่ำคืนบริเวณนั้นได้สวยไปอีกแบบ
  • 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!
  • The icon of Singapore. A mermaid with lion head. The place always busy during the day. You can also see Marina Bay Sands from this location. You can access nearby location such as Esplanade, Fullerton Hotel, etc within walking distance.
  • This is iconic. If you come to Singapore then this is the must visit place. Merlion, a statue of Lion and Mermaid represent this country. Also, get a spectacular view of Marina Bay Sands and Singapore flyer. It is always crowded, but if you miss this place then you will regret later.
