Time Out says

The Fullerton Hotel and One Fullerton, which are Singapore’s former post office and the home of numerous dining options, respectively, overlook the city’s world-famous half-lion, half-fish mascot. More than 8m tall and spouting water into the bay around the clock, this central figure of many postcards and souvenirs was fashioned by a local craftsman, but relocated in 2002 to its current – and more scenic – location. A 70-tonne sculpture that draws tourists all day long, the statue at Merlion Park is one of seven commissioned Merlions around Singapore, which include other statues of different sizes in Mount Faber and Sentosa.
