Mount Faber is located on the south side of Singapore, and forms a perfect line past the Singapore Cruise terminal and Sentosa Island. Sarah and I went to the top of Mount...more

Located on the actual top of Mount Faber is a viewing platform in which you can look all over Singapore in different directions. Carefully guarding the peak is the symbol of Singapore, the Merlion. This animal is a cross between a mermaid and a lion, which has been the symbol of Singapore now for a little more than 40 years.
This is one of smaller of the statues to be found around the city, with others on the waterfront and the largest being on Sentosa Island.
Head on out to Faber Point to visit this one!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Jenn (IMStress) gave me the best tip for a trip to Singapore... there are two seasons, nice and warm. This is it, because of its proximity to the equator, you are not going to get a lot of sway from the thermometer, which means that throughout the year, you can pretty much leave your wool coats elsewhere. I was very comfortable in shorts and a t-shirt most of the day!
