Theatres on the bay

Pop by Esplanade at any time and you’ll find it hard not to be infected by its palpable creative vibe, whether it’s the ever-changing, larger than life visual arts display near the main entrance or the world-class performances staged here.

The shows featured cut across cultures and genres. You can catch a concert by Western greats such as The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra or a Chinese play inspired by the late doyen of Singapore Chinese theatre Kuo Pao Kun.

Fondly nicknamed "the Durian” by Singaporeans for its resemblance to the popular fruit, Esplanade holds a 1,600-seat Concert Hall, a 2,000-seat Theatre and several intimate performance venues.

Merlion Park

Half-fish and half-lion, the iconic Merlion resides at the Merlion Park waterfront. The Merlion's body symbolises Singapore's humble beginnings as a fishing village when it was called Temasek, which comes from the same root as the word tasek ('lake' in Malay). Its head represents Singapore’s original name, Singapura, or ‘lion city’ in Malay.

Today, you can glimpse this legend at Merlion Park. Spouting water from its mouth, the Merlion statue stands tall at 8.6 metres and weighs 70 tonnes.

S.E.A. Aquarium™ at Resorts World™ Sentosa

As you stare at the shoals of fish and fascinating sea creatures swimming in the tanks of the S.E.A. Aquarium™, you may wonder who is actually watching whom. Are they, in fact, ogling humans like two-legged mammal exhibits from the other side of the glass tank?

No matter the perspective, the aquarium within Resorts World™ Sentosa is a magical marine world with more than 100,000 underwater animals from approximately 1,000 species, including leopard sharks, goliath groupers and squadrons of manta rays.
