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.

  • There is nothing much to say. Must visit place in Singapore. The place looks amazing with the background all lit up. A good place to sit down for a while! My recommendation is to have a dinner at boat quay. Walk up to this place. Enjoy the light show at 9 PM and just spend some time here!
  • It is such an 'a must place to go' unfortunately, I have visited this Merlion at the night time. Might be the lack of camera phone. 🤩😁 Love to visit and stay in this country, as people known as the clean country, yap hundred percent right. Love the way of citizen to live in, all the facilities keep and maintain in a good condition. Overall, it is the good place to go. See in another chance and time. 😇😇😇😇😇
