Sentosa Merlion, Sentosa Island
(3.1/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Come face-to-face with one Singapore's symbols at Sentosa Merlion, a giant statue of a creature with a lion's head and a body of a fish. Ride in a elevator up to the mouth of the 37 m (120 ft) fish-lion statue, where you can pick up your prosperity coin--included in the ticket price--and ring the prosperity bell for good luck. From the mouth of the creature you can also enjoy sweeping views over the city and take one of Singapore's most iconic photos, in the jaws of a lion. Put Sentosa Merlion on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Sentosa Island vacation planner.

  • An island that was designed as an island of fun, you are the Universal Studios Park, puzzles, Aquarium, KidZania, and 3 beaches (Siloso, Palawan Beach and Tanjong), among other attractions. The island has been growing a lot, already has some resorts, such as Hard Rock cafe Resort. It is possible to arrive on the island in several ways, but the coolest thing is the streetcar (Singaure Cable Car) where you can have a great view up. The Merlion is the symbol of Singapore, Sentosa and also has a very large statue

  • Nice square on one side and a fairly interesting long walk on the backside that will take you down to the beaches! A rather big statue, didn't go up in it!
