Ferris wheel in Singapore - 30 minutes above the city

Singapore is surprised by the scale of its buildings. Being in the center of the city, you will definitely see a ferris wheel. Missing it is impossible. This attraction may seem quite ordinary (for sure, almost everyone rode on the Ferris wheel), but it is worth attention. Singapore Flyer may well take place in the list of the main attractions of the city.

Ferris Wheel Singapore Flyer

Giant ferris wheel located inSingapore, opened in 2008. At that time, it immediately attracted everyone’s attention, as it was the tallest wheel in the world. Imagine it is as tall as a 55-storey building! It is 165 meters. 5 meters taller than the Nanchang Star in China, and 30 meters taller than the London Eye.

Until 2014, it remained the highest,until a wheel with a new record height of 168 meters was launched in Las Vegas. And then several more countries continued to compete on the biggest wheel in the world. But I think that in any case you will like the Ferris wheel in Singapore.

There are some interesting facts about Singapore.Flyer. It is noteworthy that the wheel rotates clockwise, while the majority of such structures around the world rotates counterclockwise. It is believed that when rotating clockwise, the wheel attracts wealth and luck to the city. And not without the magic of numbers. The wheel has 28 cabins, each of which can accommodate 28 people, and the wheel makes a complete revolution in 28 minutes.

Of course, the number 8 is not just here. Naturally, Feng Shui is here again. It is believed that the figure 8 brings good luck, so that the wheel, like the whole city, was built in compliance with Chinese philosophy. Well, nothing in Singapore is not done just like that! Maybe this is why Singapore is so cozy, comfortable, modern and very developed.

Under the wheel, at its base, are cafes andshops, even have a mini-garden with a river, a grotto and a waterfall. In the river live fish, which you can feed, if you drop a coin in a special machine.

Buying a ticket at the ticket office, you walk up the stairsup to the boarding room. The room itself is small and decorated very peculiar. Some kind of cosmic and incomprehensible. Inside it is dark, and the highlight of the walls is as if you are in a spaceship. Passing through the room leading to the landing, we stopped at a strange man-made structure in the form of a ball, and we did not find a sign describing this work.

We leave for landing. Huge cylindrical viewing cabins are equipped with monitors and a comfortable soft seat that runs in the center along the entire cab. Panoramic glazing completely from four sides.

From the height of 165 meters you can see the entire central partcities. In the evening there is a particularly beautiful view. The whole city shines with lights. You can even see the show "supertree", if you are on the wheel just when the show passes. The wheel makes a circle in 28 minutes. This time is enough to make a lot of beautiful photos and have time to sit and enjoy the view. Excellent photos from this height, of course, are best obtained with a good camera.

In the evening, a truly stunning view of a modern city full of lights and tall buildings opens from the wheel. We went and did not regret a bit, and therefore I would recommend to visit it.

For those who want to spend on the wheel of a romanticthe evening there are specially designed cabins in the form of a mini-restaurant. Dinner lasts 1 hour, that is, you will make on the wheel 2 turns, and not one, as in the standard ticket. A table is set in the cab, and you can surprise a loved one by giving a wonderful dinner at a height overlooking the city.

True, the cabin will not be private. The cabin accommodates about 5 tables. During the dinner, a waiter serves you by candlelight. It is also possible to buy a ticket, which will include a glass of champagne. Such a ticket will, of course, cost more than usual.
