The Singapore Flyer is the world’s largest observation wheel. A one-of-a-kind experience and built over a three-story terminal building, the Flyer is 150 metres in diameter, 165 metres high, and travels at 0.21m per second (it is some 30 metres taller than the famous London Eye!). With breathtaking panorama views that are so radically different during the day and at night, it’s hard to choose the best time to take a ride.
Passengers will get to see such city sights as the Singapore River, Raffles Place, Marina Bay, Empress Place and the Padang. Each of Singapore Flyer 28 city-bus-sized air-conditioned capsules can carry up to 28 passengers and a complete rotation of the wheel takes approximately 30 minutes.
If shopping is your thing, there are plenty of opportunities here from luxury watches to jewellery but it’s not all about extravagance; you can sample various types of delicious food at many of the city-state’s restaurants as well as relaxing at a spa facility offering such treatments as a ‘Dr. Fish’ spa and foot reflexology. An activity not to be missed for those who love the idea of flying is to experience the flight simulator and be a pilot for a day in a well-equipped cockpit.
