If you live in the UK and you’ve been to London you may as well have been on the London Eye. The Singapore Flyer is a big wheel, just like the London Eye, but as the name suggests it’s located in Singapore. It’s also larger than its London counterpart.
We visited as part of our honeymoon trip which included a few days in Singapore.
We visited the Singapore Flyer on a Friday day time and it was very pleasantly quiet. We only had a couple of people in front of us in the queue for tickets and when we went to board our capsule it was so quiet, we ended up with a capsule of our own. It was quite the experience.
The view from the capsule is quite breath-taking. You can see miles and miles of skyscrapers. You don’t quite realise how built up Singapore is until you see if from the air. There are over 4,300 completed skyscrapers in the city-state and more under construction. The city is actually ranked #12 in the world for the number of skyscrapers. With Hong Kong coming in at #1.
We visited a couple of weeks after the Singapore Grand Prix and you could easily see the pit lane, the start/finish line and various other areas of the circuit which they were still dismantling.
You can also see the famous Marina Bay Gardens with the trees that light up at night. We went during day time, but I bet the views would be spectacular as well as night.
It costs S$33 for an adult to go on to the Singapore Flyer (around £18.50) and S$21 for a child (around £12).
Here’s a few pictures of the views from the Singapore Flyer? Have you been? Would you like to go?
