The cultural heart of the city includes the center of government, museums, and Fort Canning Park.

Across the Singapore River is the Singapore’s beloved symbol, the Merlion. The mythical creature, half fish and half lion, represents the city’s original name’s meaning ‘lion city’ and its history as a fishing port. We found them all over town including Sentosa Island, Mount Faber, Universal Studios, and most famously the fountain at the mouth of Singapore River. Its even on their one dollar coin.
