|About these ratings|
On Marina Bay, the Merlion Park hosts one of Singapore's most recognizable monuments. The Merlion statue is the head of a lion with the body and tail of a fish, and the hybrid creature spouts water from its mouth and into the bay. Although the statue has claimed all the fame, the park's true highlight is the panoramic view. Particularly at night, the urban vista with the spectacular Marina Bay Sands resort impresses visitors.
The park is just a short walk from the Raffles Place MRT station near the Singapore Flyer. The park is free to visit at any time of the day (though we recommend nighttime). For more information, check out the Singapore Tourism Board's website.
