Singapore flyer

Singapore Flyer – This tourist attraction has opened last year (2008). It is a giant observation wheel for a magnificent 360° view of Singapore city. Ticket is expensive but worth the visit. During clear weather; you can even see part of Indonesia and Malaysia. They have audio guide to give information about each place seen from flyer.

Singapore Flyer is similar to London Eye but much bigger than that. This gigantic structure is located near Marina Bay. Big capsule shaped compartment can accommodate more than 25 people at a time. There are 28 such capsules. Currently this is the world’s largest Ferris wheel.

We spotted Marina bay, formula one circuit, esplanade, Sentosa Island, Kallang River, Suntec city. (See pictures below; click on pictures to get enlarged and better view)
