Merlion Park: An iconic sight in Singapore, housing two Merlion statues, is the picturesque Merlion Park, located near One Fullerton in the CBD (Central Business District) area. A legendary creature with a lion 's head and a fish's body, Merlion is considered a symbol of the Lion City. The larger of the two statues measures 8.6 metres, spouting water from the mouth, which was later joined by a Merlion cub, measuring 2 metres and placed near the main Merlion. While visiting the concrete structure is not worth the time in itself, the views of Marina Bay make the trip worthwhile.
In 1972, the 70-tonne concrete statue was first unveiled and became one of Singapore's must-visit tourist spots. One of the seven permitted Merlion sculptures in the metropolis is the original Merlion statue and the cub. The best time to enjoy this half-lion, half-fish structure is either early in the morning or late at night when the crowd is smaller and there is a stunning view from across Marina Bay.
