Sentosa Merlion, Sentosa Island

Come face-to-face with one Singapore's symbols at Sentosa Merlion, a giant statue of a creature with a lion's head and a body of a fish. Ride in a elevator up to the mouth of the 37 m (120 ft) fish-lion statue, where you can pick up your prosperity coin--included in the ticket price--and ring the prosperity bell for good luck. From the mouth of the creature you can also enjoy sweeping views over the city and take one of Singapore's most iconic photos, in the jaws of a lion. Plan my Sentosa Island trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • We looked at it b/c it was on our way but I wouldn’t go out of my way to see it. It was under construction or something. We didn’t go to the top since we saw nice views from other activities.  more »
  • If you are visiting Singapore for 3-4 days...then 1 hour is more than sufficient for visiting park else u can enjoy the view in the evening and can sit there and enjoy food in many restaurants there  more »

  • Definitely come here during the weekdays. Much less people and hence much easier to take pictures without tons of people around. Then walk is nice as long as you come here in the afternoon while the sun is setting. Sea breeze definitely helps to cool you down a bit. Prepare to do tons of walking unless you are paying for the monorails.
  • Careful with the parrot staff. They will say touching is free no photography. Then lure you in take pics and print the pics and ask if you want to buy all. But other than that great staff and friendly. Nice views
