Spicy Friday Story: Chalo Singapore # 7

 Singapore Flyer

Singapore Flyer

The Singapore Flyer is a giant observation wheel at Downtown Core, Singapore which was officially opened on 15 April 2008, with construction having taken about 2½ years. It has 28 air-conditioned capsules, each able to accommodate 28 passengers, and incorporates a three-story terminal building. 

This giant observation wheel offers 360-degree city views, a panorama that stretches to parts of Malaysia and Indonesia on a clear day.

The Singapore Flyer is the go-to attraction for the most magnificent views of the city.

A scenic spin on the Singapore Flyer takes you 165 metres above ground, or as high as 42 storeys, as you marvel at the spectacular scenery below.

Located in the heart of downtown Marina Bay, the Singapore Flyer is Asia’s largest giant observation wheel.

More importantly, it is high on thrills for tourists and locals alike. Step into one of the 28 fully air-conditioned glass capsules, and be transported on a 30-minute journey of stunning day and night scenes.

From this glorious vantage point, you’ll be able to feast your eyes on iconic and historical sights from Marina Bay to the Singapore River, such as Raffles Place, Merlion Park, Empress Place and the Padang.

With any luck, you’ll be able to spot landmarks up to 45km away, like Changi Airport, Sentosa Island and parts of Malaysia and Indonesia.

For a truly unique aerial dining experience, you can even enjoy a four course-meal, or sip on cocktails and champagne with the Singapore Flyer’s special in-flight packages.

Back on the ground, be sure to visit dining options like Sky View Pavilion—which serves up a spread of contemporary Cantonese dishes—and Bhandari Saffron for authentic Indian fare.
