NileGuide Expert tip:

Be sure to get an audio guide - there is also a feng shui one available for an interesting alternative perspective.

Description:

Officially launched in March 2008, the Singapore Flyer is currently the world's largest observation wheel, at 165m tall – the height of a 42 storey building, or 31 male giraffes stacked on top of one another!  Each of the 28 capsules is about the size of a city bus and can comfortably carry up to 28 passengers, although you will rarely need to share your capsule with more than a handful of other people. 

The journey takes 30 minutes, and as the wheel turns at a leisurely 0.21m per second, you get to take in 360° views over the city and across to the surrounding islands. In-capsule Guided Tours introduce the surrounding landmarks and anecdotes about Singapore. A feng shui guide is available for an alternative perspective.

Other attractions at the Singapore Flyer include Fish Reflexology, a Flight Simulator, Rainforest Discovery and various food outlets and shops.
