On Tuesday, 5 April 2016, Ambassador Antonio A. Morales and First Secretary and Consul Mersole J. Mellejor conducted a brief tour at the Fullerton Bay Hotel at the invitation of the Fullerton Hotel management. The tour was an opportunity to familiarize the facilities, spaces and services of the Fullerton Bay Hotel. Designated as a heritage site, the hotel is built on top of the former port and customs office of Singapore. The Fullerton Hotel group is responsible for the upkeep of the Singapore ‘Merlion’, which has long been considered an icon of the city-state. It is connected to its sister hotel through an underground passage crossing beneath the Fullerton Road.
