Singapore hotels

Originally the Merlion and its Cub were located by the Esplanade Bridge which is actually only 120 metres from its current location. The current location is a 2500 square meter park referred to as Merlion Park.

The park has since become a popular attraction among tourists as the Merlion was erected in 1972 as a symbol to welcome all people who visit Singapore. The area around Merlion Park consists of a promontory that has terraced seating and a viewing deck that can hold three hundred people. The unique landing dock allows tourists to take river taxis in order to see the amazing Merlion and Cub statue.
