As one of Singapore's iconic attractions, Merlion Park is the smallest park in Singapore, but it is well-known in the world as a lever in many parks in Singapore. The two large and small Merlion statues made of concrete by Mr. Lin Langxin are crowded by tourists basically every day, especially the large water-jetted Merlion statues, which are more sought after. You need to see the stitches when shooting from all angles.
Easily accessible at the southern part of Singapore CBD and north of Marina Bay, and a 5 minute stroll from 'Raffles Place' MRT station. Often crowded in the day and evenings with tourists and locals, though lesser during Covid19 period. There are several cafes and restaurants at Merlion Park, thought the cheaper options are just a stroll away towards the MRT stations and other nearby attractions.No admission fees, though there is option of paying for a Singapore River ferry tour that includes a stop in front of Merlion statue.Best experienced during sunrise or sunset period. For evening visits, optional to stay to see the Marina Bay Sands light show opposite (2-3 shows a night, usually at 8pm and 9pm+, depending on day and season).*note that Marina Bay Sands light show is currently suspended during Singapore circuit breaker semi-lockdown.
Merlion Park is a landmark building in Singapore and a major tourist attraction in Singapore. It is located next to Marina Bay in Singapore's downtown area. The Merlion is a symbol of Singapore. Between 4 pm and 5 pm on February 28, 2009, the Merlion statue was struck by lightning. Staff nearby said they heard the explosion, and the broken pieces fell to the ground. The repair work was completed in March of that year.
Merlion Park is the absolute symbol of Singrapore, and I didn't dare miss seeing it in person when I was in Singapore last August 2019. I actually thought that the Merlion was small in person, but oh gosh! It was hugeeeee. I, of course, did the obligatory Merlion and the water photo. The Merlion Park is right across Marina Bay Sands so, you will also be able to catch a glimpse of the famed hotel from the park. Moreso, the Merlion Park has a lot of restaurants around it. It would be great to dine in with that view in front of you.
Singapore is a Great place to go together with your Family
