General introduction

Merlion Park is the must-see attraction in Singapore. It is a famous landmark and symbol of Singapore. This mascot represents the Lion City of Singapore and it is erected on the banks of the Singapore River. Tourists will never forget to leave a photo in front of the Merlion. Memorial photo! In addition to admiring the Merlion during the day, there are also beautiful light shows projected on the Merlion Park at night and the night area is even more charming. Be sure to come and enjoy the night view. Should not be missed!

Merlion Park is the smallest park in Singapore and it is located next to the Fulton Hotel, covering 0.25 hectares of ground, with an open deck, so that visitors can walk in front of the Merlion and take as many pictures as they want.  Merlion is a fictional lion head animal. It was designed in 1964 by Mr. Fraser Brunner, then director of the Van Kleef Aquarium. It was adopted by the New Brigade as a symbol two years later and was used until 1997. During this period, the Merlion has become a representative of Singapore, like the Eiffel Tower in France or the Statue of Liberty in the United States.

The fish tail as a city identification of Singapore, representing excellent character such as courage, wisdom, strength, and fish tail lion also symbolizes the hardcoming of the first batch of the ancestors of fighting. The most well-known fishhouses are located in the East Bay of Singapore, which is a preferred attraction of Singapore’s historical culture.

The image of the merlion lion head fish body originated from the title of Singapore in Malay. In Malay, Singapore is called “Singapura”, the meaning of the word is “lion”, which is why Singapore. There is no lion but it is the reason for being a lion city.

This is the another Merlion in Sentosa 😍I will share more about the Sentosa Island on the new blog topic later.

There are 7 merlion statues in Singapore, distributed at the Singapore Tourism Board, Sentosa Island, Mount Faber and Hongmao Bridge, but the most well-known and not to be missed is the Merlion Park near Marina Bay. The Merlion statue in the Merlion Park near Marina Bay is 8.8 meters high and weighs 70 tons. It faces the Eastern Marina Bay and overlooks the Eastern waters of Singapore, symbolizing the spirit of Singaporeans’ continuous exploration. Next to this statue, there is also a small merlion statue, two meters high and 3 tons in weight, which is also a favorite photo place for tourists like me.

Merlion Park and Singapore’s other landmark, Marina Bay Sands, are across the bay and near Raffles MRT Station. The transportation is very very convenient in Singapore.

Singapore’s Merlion Park is directly opposite the world-famous Sands Hotel. The wavy Sands Hotel Casino and Shopping Mall. The Sands Hotel’s water dance show is held on the opposite platform. As one of the most complicated buildings in history, many of them have been completed. The world’s highest record adds legend. The hotel’s most topical top floor, the huge sky garden is equal to 3 football fields. I hope that I can soak in the highest infinity pool in the world and look out at the Merlion next time! There are 21 museums in the museum. There are so many museums in Singapore.

The coconut shell is the Museum of Art and Science. It can only be said that Singapore is worth seeing only in architecture. Moving towards the Merlion Park, the left-hand building is the Binhai Art Center, and the appearance of aluminum sunshades is like a durian. This art center cost 600 million Singapore dollars to build. The inside concert hall and theater are built on a world-class scale. There is also a coastal performing arts library and outdoor performance venue. I really want to go inside and see it next time!

On the top is the Singapore Flyer, a ferris wheel with a diameter of 150 meters. It takes half an hour to make a lap, and the shopping mall below is 165 meters. It is the largest ferris wheel in the world! Rare, but a viewing cabin can accommodate 28 people. There is a gimmick. In addition, you can take a ferris wheel to enjoy a big meal. The romantic price is $328.9 SGD (surprised).

Entertainment at Merlion Park

The fishwish park covers an area of 0.25 hectares, the area is not large, but as a Singapore landmark, a batch of tourists are still attracted to this visit. Next to the statue of fish tail, build a look at the public and tourists. If you don’t hurry, sit on the table to blow the sea breeze, enjoy the graceful scenery of the Singapore Bay, is really comfortable. If you arrive in the Tail Lion Park, it is already in the evening. It may wish to stay slightly, to be dark, the opposite Bay Bay Golden Salagia gives a beautiful light, overlooking the charming night of Singapore. If you are lucky, you can catch up with the citizens who hold music performances or organize events in the Fishwish Park, and feel the customs of the “Lion City”. I remember that when I took a photo with the fish tail, I took a photo of the fish tail lion spurting the water column, which is said to get strength and wealth.
