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.

After get to know from news that it be demolished on 20 Oct, just went there for the last chance at 50% off too. Got the chance to take photo and received Merlion gold coin as gift. more »
Definitely come here during the weekdays. Much less people and hence much easier to take pictures without tons of people around.

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
