Merlion Park

Recommendation by Lemi

Singapore’s half-fish, half-lion statue stands proudly today at Merlion Park as it overlooks Marina Bay. The national icon was originally erected on the mouth of Singapore River, but was moved 120 meters away in 2002. Officials say that it was relocated because the Esplanade Bridge obstructed its view, but skeptics believe that the migration was based on Feng Shui. It is said that its primary location brought bad karma, and was even blamed for the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis. Take the obligatory tourist photo and marvel at the glory of the Merlion, which now passes Feng Shui standards.
