This park is notable especially because it holds the iconic landmark and "mascot" of Singapore: Merlion, a mythical half-lion, half-fish creature. This 8.6 metre-tall fountain should represent the history of the city. The fish stands for its origin, as it used to be a fishing village and the lion symbolizes Singapore's original name - "lion city".
The park had to change its location in 2002 and it now offers splendid panoramic views of the surrounding area. There is also a smaller version of Merlion, its cub, installed in the park. Find a spot from where you can snap a picture of both the "parent" and its "cub".
You can also hop on a bumboat and cruise between Singapore's famous attractions.
