Merlion Park

One of the most beautiful areas to admire Singapore in all its splendor is the Merlion Park. In this park, under the skyscrapers of the bay and next to the sea, is where is the most well-known statue of Merlion, the symbol of Singapore.

Half fish and half lion, Merlion is the image of Singapore, an image that you will find throughout the city. It was designed in 1964 as the image of the Singapore Ministry of Tourism.

The lion's head represents the lion that Prince Sang Nila Utama discovered when he re-discovered Singapore in the eleventh century. The fish tail represents the fishing past of the city, when it was still known as Temasek.

When Sang Nila arrived in Singapore, he changed the name of Temasek through Singapore (Lion City, "singa" means lion and "pure" city).
The park

In the park you will find two statues of Merlion, one large and one small. The large statue spits water to the bay and is the most famous.

Next to the large statue of Merlion (8.6 meters high and 70 tons) heaps of tourists crowd to make one of the typical pictures of Singapore. Rare is the traveler who does not remember a photo under the water that expels the curious cat.
Better at night

The best time to visit Merlion Park is when Singapore dresses up at night. The image of the Singapore skyscrapers illuminated with Merlion on the front will become the postcard that will appear in your mind every time you think of the city.
