"SENTOSA - The Merlion and Merlion Walk" Merlion on Sentosa Island Tip by Umea6

Merlion on Sentosa Island, Singapore: 12 reviews and 34 photos


The symbol of Singapore - lion's head and a mermaid's body. It is 37 m tall and the lift takes you to the strusture's mouth and top of the head to get a view of the whole city. There is also a story of how this creature became symbol of the island.
Merlion Walk is behind the statue and is at its best at night. Everyone who was in Barcelona and has seen the Gaudi's Guell Park will see the resemblance as this walk was inspired by this artist.
