This is the Merlion Park. It's where hoards of tourist will arrive with their cameras and click click click away. Yes, I was one of them, remember I was pretending to be a tourist? haha..
There's a platform built, so that you can take photos of it from the front. Purpose built for tourist. This place is also where you can get lots and lots of Merlion memorabilia.
The first photo is taken from further away, from a bridge.
Hmm. Wonder if the tourist boat will overflow with water if it goes under the merlion's stream of water :-)
