This schedule was not on our itinerary initially.
But we decided to have a check it out since we are already at downtown.


It's impossible to miss this giant observation wheel when you're in town.
Which made it easier to locate.
We actually walked down a few streets from the nearest MRT station.
We could have taken bus, but yeah, it's fine. :')

Once you entered the premise, you should see a man-made garden with lake and garden.

FYI you will need to pass to security check upon entering.
They will made you walked thru a detector machine, similar to those at airports.



After that, you should see an escalator to the exhibition section.

A section where they exhibit some arts while introducing the Singapore Flyer.
A bit Sci-Fi, I know.

The exhibition hall is rather small.
You should take about 5 to 15 minutes to walk thru everything.


FYI washrooms are available at this section.
Perhaps you need it before going on flight.



And we are here at the boarding platform! :D






There will be staffs who assist you to get on-board.
If you are going in as a big group, you can request to have a capsule by yourselves.
Otherwise, you might have to share the capsule with others.










Each capsule is capable to accommodate 28 persons.
With a total of 28 capsules, Singapore Flyer can hold a maximum of 784 passengers at a time!
All capsules have air-conditioners and benches to sit.
Sit back and relax.


The wheel rotates slow and steady.
Just if you're wondering, each rotation takes approximately 30 minutes.


The highest point of this giant wheel is 165 metres above ground, or equivalent to 42 storeys,
making it Asia's largest giant observation wheel since year 2008.

 Rest assured, the structure is solid.
It's definitely not scary because I'm a person who is afraid of height. :')


30 minutes will went passed before you notice.
So enjoy the moment and the view outside!
Thank God for good weather!!!

Does it worth the price?
Having said that it's equivalent closely to RM100.


My dad was shocked when I showed him our photos taken here.
I told him saying, "The view up there was spectacular, but definitely an one-time thing."
HAHAHA
