Riding the Singapore Flyer

Our family rode the Singapore Flyer on Vesak Day morning as my sister obtained some corporate passes and we can ride for free.

Before you could reach the boarding area, you will have to walk through the exhibits. It has some interesting facts about the flyer. Pretty cool to stop by and take a look.

Finally when at the boarding area, I saw a glimpse of the flyer. The queue wasn’t very long nevertheless, there was some waiting time, less than ten minutes.

The flyer doesn’t stop, it moves on a constant speed even when you board, so you got to be fast and careful.

The first view of Singapore is the Kallang River and its surrounding. Took a few photos and zoom-in to take the dragon boat and canoing.

When we reached the summit of the wheel, at 165 m high, there was an annoucement informing the passengers about it.

We saw the view of Garden By the Bay and the Marina Barrage, lovely greenery. These can be seen when at both ascending and descending of the wheel.

When the wheel descending, we saw the view of the Marina Financial Centre, the Padang, Shenton Way and the Marina Bay Sands

Finally its time for our capsule to approach the original boarding point.

For the visitors who do not want to go home empty handed, you can purchase some souvenirs from the gift shop.

It was an interesting ride, with great scenery of Singapore skyscrapers and greens. A good experience for both local and tourist.
