Singapore’s Merlion to open as temporary hotel
Feb 16, 2011
Singapore’s mythical symbol—the half-lion, half-sea creature known as The Merlion—is to be converted (temporarily) into a hotel suite. It could be the ideal temporary pad for a celebrity or high roller gambler visiting the city-state. The Merlion landmark at Merlion Park will undergo a transformation starting 7th February to become a temporary hotel suite. The Merlion Hotel is just one of the many artwork installation projects presented as part of this year’s Singapore Biennale organised by the Singapore Art Museum. The temporary hotel will be unveiled on 11th March and opened for public viewing for a two-month period from 13th March. Key information on The Merlion Hotel, including how visitors may stay a night at the suite, will be announced shortly by the museum. It will revert to being a tourist landmark on 6th June.
