A curious mix of lion and fish, the Merlion is Singapore’s fictional figure of myth, and also national mascot. The iconic statue spewing the jet of water can be seen on the fringes of the Singapore River, just in front of the Marina Bay Sands. And before you wonder, yes, this is a new Merlion figure and not a mere repaint. This year’s edition is a little smaller, sure, but the cool new water effect more than makes up for it.
