Singapore Flyer is Singapore's answer to London Eye as well as Malaysia Eye. Singapore Flyer is the current world largest observation wheel. Standing at a stunning 165m from the ground, the Flyers offer breathtaking, panoramic views of the Marina Bay, island city and beyond. One can also see the F1 racing street circuit and the route it will take.
To get there, the nearest MRT Station is City Hall. There are 2 options from here. One can walk there from the City Hall MRT Station, via Stamford Road and Raffles Avenue (the Esplanade Theatres as the landmark). I reckon it will be a 20-25 minutes walk. The other option is to take a free shuttle bus (provided by the manangement of Singapore Flyer) to the Flyer. The bus stop is located at Coleman Street (St Andrew's Cathedral, near the City Hall MRT Station)
If you happened to be at Merlion Park, cross the bridge to the Esplanade Theatres. From there, turn right into Raffles Avenue and straight ahead to the Flyer. It should be around 25 minutes walk.
The ticket will cost SGD29.50 if purchased on this site. For cheaper option, try to find travel agent that sold the ticket (There is one on third floor of People's Park Centre, Chinatown). The ticket is sold at SGD24 by the travel agent. The down side is one need to pay in cash term and the ticket will not entitle you for a ride after 6pm
One can either seat or stand to enjoy the view. There are plenty of room inside the capsule
While in the capsule, remember to grab a copy of the in flight compass. It will gives you a guide of the surrounding structures. The Singapore F1 Street race track is also well illustrated here. Apparently, the F1 Track almost go around the Flyer and the F1 pit stop is nearby the Flyer.
While in the capsule, one can view the stunning structures of the Flyer itself. Such a great engineering achievement.
After the wonderful journey end, one will enter a souvenir shop before the exit. The souvenir shop is only accessible for those who had took the ride.
Well, I am not leaving without souvenir. This name card holder cost SGD29 and the wheel can be spin. Anyway, it's pretty expensive by my standard
