No visit to Sentosa is complete without exploring its most famous symbol 37-metre tall Merlion. Though it is half-lion and half fish, it contains more than meets the eye. There is a museum about origins of Merlion inside and viewing deck in the head offers 360 degrees view of Sentosa and southern part of Singapore. Monorail can give you some rest as the admission to Sentosa covers also unlimited rides on the monorail that connect main attractions. But beware, the waiting times can be enormous in the afternoons on weekends and holidays.
