The Merlion Pop-up Hotel in Singapore

Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi created this pop-up hotel for the Singapore Biennale that opened last week. It is a single room, temporarily constructed around the half-lion half-fish creature Merlion, a well-known tourist icon and mascot of Singapore.

The room is fully-fitted with a double bed, bathroom, luxury amenities and personalized services such as a dedicated Merlion Hotel butler and breakfast is at the luxurious Fullerton Hotel next door. The room is fully booked but it is still open for public viewing between 10am and 8pm until 5 May.

For more information see Singapore Biennale.
