You might have noticed by now that most of my previous posts about Singapore were nightscapes, and that’s because we went there primarily for training so we were free only at night.
On our last day of classes, we decided to go to One Fullerton where the iconic Merlion Park is located.
Again, because we were there during the Formula 1 Race, it was difficult to move around since they closed off some of the roads. We also had no choice but to get off at a farther train station than the usual and walk.
Singapore is a very tourist friendly country because there were signs all around to guide map-challenged tourists like me. When I saw the Fullerton Hotel, I knew we were near our destination.
Finally at One Fullerton, I was treated to views of the Singapore River and the iconic Marina Bay Sands.
Here’s a close-up shot of Marina Bay Sands, where I watched a light and water show the previous night.
I could also see the Singapore Flyer from where we were. Pardon the photo quality since this was a zoomed-in shot.
From where we were, I could also see the Pan Pacific and Mandarin Oriental Hotels.
Finally, we reached Merlion Park and because it is perhaps Singapore’s most famous landmark, it was full of people.
Here are some of my photos of the Merlion that are taken at different angles.
By the way, river cruises are available at One Fullerton. I don’t know how much it costs, though since we did not try it.
We also passed by this statue when we accessed the train station near the hotel.
This is a version of French artist Rodin’s “The Thinker,” which is based on Dante’s “Divine Comedy.”
Lastly, here are photos of ION Orchard, one of Singapore’s upscale malls.
