Singapore Flyer, Singapore

Singapore Flyer, Singapore (must see)

If you want to see all of Singapore, especially the area of the bay, in an unobstructed panoramic way, don't hesitate to get on the Singapore Flyer on a clear day. Standing a lofty 165 meters tall, this monumental Ferris wheel was once the world's tallest until the Las Vegas “High Roller”, opened in 2014, surpassed it by a mere 2.6 m (9 ft). Much like the “High Roller”, the Singapore Flyer spins in slow motion with the journey lasting a half hour full turn – just enough to see everything and take dozens of photos before being brought back down into a rainforest-covered park. There are 28 cabins in all, each able to carry 28 passengers, but normally when there is no queue, it can be pretty vacant and you can have your privacy. Those acrophobic not need to worry at all, because they will not feel the height when in the capsule and, besides, the ride is made incredibly smooth, so they won't feel the rotation either. The cabins are air-conditioned and with panoramic screens inside providing all the necessary details on the various sights and surroundings.

The best time for having a Flyer ride is on weekdays as well as before or just after sunset to see the city at night. Various packages are offered for those looking to get high in style, such as the signature Singapore Sling Flight, in which drinks are served for that extra lift.

Tip:
The best time for having a Flyer ride is on weekdays as well as before or just after sunset to see the city at night.
