Local Attractions

Our centrally-located hotel is close to some of Singapore's most spectacular local attractions.

Here is a list of the Top Must-See Places in Singapore:

Merlion Park

The Merlion, a mythical creature with a lion’s head and a fish’s body, is a national icon that was installed on 15 September 1972. The eight-metre tall Merlion sculpture, situated at the mouth of the Singapore River, is a favourite among photographers and visitors. Legend has it that Sang Nila Utama, the Palembang king, who discovered the island of Temasek first caught sight of a lion on the island. So amazed was he at its grace and strength that he renamed the island Singapura, or ‘Lion City’.
