A selfi with Merlion is a must for Singapore. Nice place fully surrounded by tourists. A good view is offered from Frolino hotel.

Obviously it was packed!!! It is Singapore! We walked to merlion from MBS to take some quick selfies, but didn't go into the park area as it was about to storm. It is definitely one of those things you MUST visit on your first trip...More

The Merlion is a great attraction in Singapore. I am a photographer and this is the perfect spot to photograph the Merlion together with the Marina Bay Sands and the city. The Merlion is best visited during the night as the surrounding lights provide a...More

Overcrowded with Chinese. Looks like the Mermaid Lion is puking water. Definitely not worth 7.5 million to make. It is a waste of stone and a waste of money to keep the fountain going. I've been there three times and every single time a Chinese...More

The landmark structure of singapore is a good photo opportunity. Located in the center of singapore, you can visit this place once.

Overcrowded with tons of Chinese tourists with their selfie hands in your faces. Waste of time waste of stone waste of space ugly to look at. It's a weird creature puking some dirty water in a brown Bay. Disappointed... DO NOT GO.

Totally worthwhile trekking to find this iconic Singapore landmark. Difficult to find at first, but once you do, it's amazing! Take the right exit out of the MRT and you'll be right

Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the
traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to
dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is
the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a
world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars,
and other attractions all geared towards pure
entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands
provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo

If you come from Marina Bay just walk through to the Marina Bay Sand and cross the road you'll arrive at Garden by The Bay. Cloud garden is in Garden by The Bay. Side by side with Flower Dome.

I suggest you go to your hotel first, you can request an early check in, if they have available rooms they will let you check in, if not, you can leave your things in the front desk. Because Merlion Park is a long walk, it... More
