If you think pets and humans are the only ones with birthdays, you’re wrong.
Our iconic structure, the Merlion, turns 50 on September 15, 2022. With the Merlion being like a VIP in Singapore, there will be a month of celebrations to commemorate this special occasion.
The Merlion statue will be illuminated from now until September 28 to celebrate its 50th anniversary
The Merlion Statue at Merlion Park will be illuminated from 6 p.m. to midnight from September 15 to 28, 2022.
Together with the wonderful light and colors, it creates perfect photo opportunities for photos with the lion.
Once you’ve finished shooting, head to the Fullerton Hotel, located near Merlion Park.
The hotel will be illuminated with warm, golden hues this month. It is an idea to bring your date for a walk there as it is a romantic sight.
Exclusive local merchandise available
There will also be exclusive Merlion and Merli themed products from local brands. This includes children’s clothing, furniture, and even personalized chocolate.
We talk about local support all the time, so now is the best time to support them if you haven’t already.
These goods come from local brands like Boldr, doob Bean Bags and Edupod. You can find some of them retailing at Design Orchard from September 1, 2022 through October 4, 2022.
Other island-wide celebrations
There are five restaurants at Marina Bay Sands that create themed drinks, and SingPost also offers exclusive Singapore mascot stamps if you’re a fan and stamp collector.
There’s nothing better to prepare for the celebrations than with a shot of adrenaline, and thrilling activities abound all over the island.
And if you are an adventurous person, try the “Merli-Go-Round x Merlion 50th edition” game on the Singapore Travel Guide app or find them via the Prudential Merlion 50 Hunt Challenge from September 9, 2022 to September 22, 2022.
Don’t say bojio, because you will receive a limited edition Merli Wrist Rest Plushie, which is extremely useful for office slaves who sit at their desks from 9am to 6pm.
