Merlion Park

One of the best places to admire Singapore in all its glory is the Merlion Park. In this park, below the skyscrapers of the bay and on the seashore, is where you can find the famous Merlion statue, the symbol of Singapore.
Half fish and half-lion, the Merlion is the image of Singapore, one that you'll find throughout the city. IT was designed in 1964 as the image of the Singapore tourism ministry. The head of the lion represents the lion the prince Sang Nila Utama discovered ion the 11th century. The fishtail represents the fishing past of the city, when it was still known as Temasek. In the park you can find two Merlion statues, one big, one small. The large statue is also a fountain that spits water, and is the most famous of the two.

Esplanade, Theatres on the Bay

There are few buildings in Singapore as eye-catching as Esplanade, a world-class performing arts centre made up of two rounded glass domes fitted with over 7,000 triangular aluminium sunshades. Locals have dubbed it "the Durian", as the venue’s twin structures resemble the spiky tropical fruit that is unique to this part of the world.
With its bold design, the space has become synonymous with the country, a funky complement to the symmetry of Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer that sit nearby.
Designed by leading local firm DP Architects, the space features a 1,600-seat Concert Hall where the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and other local, regional and international music acts regularly perform.
