The merlion never ceases to take your full attention and this giant merlion is a feat worth your time even if you don’t buy ticket. The festive mood around it really makes you feel you are in for good times.

It's literally a statue. Yes its bigger then the one at marina sands but I'm not sure why you'd bother going out of your way. We didnt see the point of paying to enter it as everything in Singapore already costs $$$$. Instead we took...More
