I have been to Sentosa on a number of occasions, walked past the Merlion statue, appreciated her enormity and grandeur as the tallest Merlion statue in the world but I was not aware that there is an entrance that we can take the lift up to her head and mouth and look down in an aerial view to appreciate the surrounding scenery.

Thanks to the great hospitality of Sentosa Development Corporation and the generosity of the subsidiary tenants, we were able to lead a group of 30 young children up to the mouth and head of the Sentosa Merlion. As I entered into the body of the Merlion, I noticed that the admission ticket is $12/- (standard) and $10/- for the local adult.

We followed a trail into a room where we were shown a video on the fabulous legendary tale of how the Srivijayan prince, Sang Nila Utama from Palembang saw a lion while on a hunting trip on the island and named the island as Singapura. The Merlion statue is associated with the discovery by the Palembang Prince.

Before taking the lift, we could insert our admission tickets into the mouths of mini-merlion statues on display at an atrium in exchange for gold coins which we could keep as souvenirs.

We then took the lifts up to the 10th level at both the mouth and head of the merlion statue. From the mouth and head of the Merlion, we could see the gorgeous panoramic view of the surrounding. The children were happy striking the make a wish bell. It was a new discovery.

Sentosa is small but I realized it needs much diligence to discover many of the unexplored areas and each time I visited Sentosa, I am always rewarded with many new discoveries. If you think you have seen all of Sentosa, you would be surprised that you have not seen them all.

Visited 08APR14 "Oh so that is what that is!" We had seen the Merlion statue flying in to Singapore. We had seen it crossing to Sentosa Island on the cable car and finally during our exploration and leisurely evening walk we head towards it, enter and learn what it is all about. How wonderful. To the makers of the Merlion Walkway heading towards the Merlion I congratulate you. What a wonder of a creation you have made.

The place is spacious with restaurants and place to have a break. Since it is the first merlion we encountered in Singapore, we took time getting pics.

For those who like adrenaline I really recommend you to go to Universal studio as we enjoy ourself.
Also really important information the fast pass unlimited is just a must to have when you go there, actually I was able to do all the roller coaster three time with this pass. It cost me 50$Sgp for the normal pass and then and additional 20 $sgp for unlimited fast pass.

Thanks Pierre

Dear Pierre S,

Thank you for your review.

The Sentosa Merlion was completed in 1995 and is the largest Merlion statue in the world. It was designed by Australian sculptor James Martin and is one of seven Merlion statue in Singapore.

The Sentosa Merlion, situated on the crest of Sentosa beside Imbiah Sentosa Express Station, is the largest Merlion statue in the world, standing 23m above sea level at a height of 37m (11 storeys). The Sentosa Merlion is the only Merlion statue that allows guests to enter and experience the commanding views of the Sentosa Merlion.

We hope that all guests enter and discover the view and story of the Sentosa Merlion!

Sincerely,
Sentosa, The State of Fun

Nothing much, only the view from the head and mouth of the Merlion was enjoyable. We had our picture taken and it cost S$20 for one or S$30 for two.

Centrally located between Imbiah and Beach station.

We bought the bundle with a dinner buffet at the The Good Old Days restaurant. Definitely not worth the money as it will be better off eating KFC/subway than the spread at the restaurant.
