The Merlion stands majestically at Imbiah, standing at 37 metres tall, The Merlion lets you dive into the myths and legends of the deep. Entrance fee is SGD8.
When purchasing the ticket, one will be given this coin. I have no clue initially of its purpose.
However, at the main entrance to The Merlion, there is this signboard which might give one a clue on the use of the given coin.
Inside the Merlion is the exhibit of the mystery of sea monsters and the kingdom of the Merfolk as well as the lake monsters.
After the exhibit, one will be lead to a theatre which tells the story of Prince Sang Nila Utama and the discovery of a ferocious lion on the island. This is the legend of the origin of The Merlion.
After the theatre, this is where the sand dollar coin given earlier is dropped into the Mercub's mouth...........
and its wondorous luck will be revealed with this card coming out from the Mercub
From here, take the lift to the Merlion View. Once reaching there, one will have the option to go to the Mouth Gallery or Head Gallery. The Head Gallery will offer a better view.
The view at Mouth Gallery is rather limited. Again at the Mouth Gallery, some Sentosa's photographer will be station here to snap photo of the visitors and be ask to view it at the cashier at the souvenir shop later. Again, one is not obligated to purchased it. You can view it and purchased it at SGD15-20 if you like it.
Well, the fortune card from the Mercubs can be exchanged for this fan at the souvenir shop at the ground floor of The Merlion.
The Merlion at Sentosa Island is definitely worth a visit. There is a delifrance cafe at the ground floor for a selection of freshly baked pastries and iced cold drinks
