As a local, this myth was probably due to poor eyesight. Lions and fish don't breed well, so maybe this was a lionfish? Anyway, it just spits water and tour buses come here so it's crowded most days. Personally, I'd avoid unless you're visiting the...More

When thinking of Singapore, you automatically associate it with these lions. Great place for a selfie or that staged shot, however everyone else thinks same. Always tour groups and crowds. Get in, get your photos of the lions and surrounds, then get out.

Whilst it has gr8 pictures to be taken of Marina Bay Sands, Ferris wheel & the river, it would be nice to have more shady area as I find it really hot & couldn’t hang around for too long.

U can spent hours around the Bay to look around or sit next to Merlion. They have some free performance but make sure to check the schedule first.

So busy and touristy! Good views of the bay and finance district but you can see this from anywhere around the area and marina.

Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the
traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to
dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is
the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a
world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars,
and other attractions all geared towards pure
entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands
provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo

The best would probably be via the MRT, from the Little India station take the Blue line to Promenade Station then transfer to the Orange Line (Circle Line) and alight at the Esplanade Station. That will be the nearest... More
