During our visit to the Merlion, we decided to take a leisurely stroll from Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay via Jubilee Bridge. The walk was refreshing and provided us with stunning views of Marina Bay, making it a great opportunity for some scenic photography. We highly recommend this route for anyone looking to explore the area and take in the beautiful sights of Singapore.
The Merlion is an iconic symbol of Singapore, standing tall at 8.6 meters tall and weighing 70 tons. The statue depicts a mythical creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish, representing the country’s origins as a fishing village and its transformation into a thriving metropolis.
One of the unique features of the Merlion is that it spouts water from its mouth, making it a popular spot for photos and selfies. Visitors can also purchase souvenirs, such as keychains and magnets, featuring the iconic statue at the nearby shops.
Visitors to the Merlion can enjoy stunning views of Marina Bay from the statue’s location at Merlion Park. The park is also home to a variety of restaurants and shops, making it a popular destination for tourists and locals alike.
Apart from admiring the statue and enjoying the views of Marina Bay, visitors can also take a walk along the waterfront promenade and explore the nearby landmarks, such as the Fullerton Hotel and the Asian Civilisations Museum.
