Sentosa Merlion, Sentosa Island

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.

  • My daughter was really upset to see the merlion in fullerton was under repair. She took some picture with this Merlion in Sentosa as replacement. The place was beautiful, especially because we were he...  more »
  • It’s a huge statue. It’s in the midst of a amusement park island. It wasn’t worth the time to go into. Walk by it and admire from a distance.  more »
  • In the center of the World of Sentosa, the enlarged version of the Singapore landmark, visitors will be visited, the week is less convenient to take photos, but once it is enough, to this game!

  • I am so happy that I was able to visit Sentosa Merlion when I visited Singapore this December 2017 for the second time because we were not able to visit it the first time I visited Singapore last July 2017. The Sentosa Merlion is all about the history of Singapore and how it became what it is today. If you would love to visit Singapore, you should not miss visiting the Merlion Tower here in Sentosa Island. The Entrance Fee is only 10 SG Dollars which I booked in Cebu Air Travel and Tours Agency (at a lesser price).
  • Worth the price, I think, with $12 (give or take), I got mine discounted and becomes $9. You get to understand how Merlion came into being and live in Singapore history and also this big statue have a wonderful view from above. When you are going down, you also given a token, gold coin, as a memento that you've been to Sentosa Merlion. The gift shop is also interesting that it has a gift shop machine that you can make your own gift for only $2 SGD.
  • Singapore major symbol which is cool to see here. But don't expect any major wow factor. Gives bit of history and go at high level to see from the top. It is ok
  • Similar to Lady Liberty of United States of America or France's Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Merlion is Singapore's iconic ambassador on the beautiful Sentosa Island. It is one of the five Merlions that has represented the island nation for the last 50 years
  • Sight of Merlion is amazing but the Merlion Magic Light show will leave you spellbound, check out the pictures :). We were lucky to have this delight as I think it was just a year-end initiative.
