The prettiest time for a spin on the Singapore Flyer is at sunset, when the skyscrapers are covered in a golden glow. As night falls, the darkness is illuminated by the buildings’ twinkling lights.
Sticking out among the skyscrapers in the Singapore skyline, the Singapore Flyer is no ordinary orb. Instead, this is where to go 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 now 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 your capsule on top of the world, feast your eyes on iconic and historical landmarks and views 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 45 kilometres away, like Changi Airport, Sentosa Island and parts of Malaysia and Indonesia.
Wine and dine in the clouds
To give folks back home something to talk about, you can even have high tea, enjoy fine-dining or sip on cocktails and Champagne on the Singapore Flyer’s special in-flight packages.
Back on the ground, be sure to visit the Singapore Food Trail, a unique 1960s themed food street offering famous local fare such as 'bak kut teh' and Hainanese chicken rice. Or take part in the fun-filled activities there, from a flight simulator ride to relaxing in a fish spa.
