Hanging In Singapore via Singapore Flyer: A One -Of-A - Kind Experience

by: Mhe-anne L. Ojeda

Ask about my one-of-a-kind experience while in Singapore last October 1-3, 2009? Well, it is taking a flight on the world’s largest observation wheel – the Singapore Flyer!

Our friend host Ate Tess Baldado works for Singapore Flyer and gave me and my four J buddies (Jean, Joseph, Judith and Jhoanna) free tickets to see Singapore’s magnificent cityscape inside the wheel capsule. At first I was very hesitant because I thought it is just like the ordinary ferris wheel. But I was wrong. Standing at stunning 165m, the Flyer is the height of a 42-storey building and there is no other place in Singapore that offers a breathtaking, panoramic views of Singapore. As the wheel turns, you’ll be treated to a visual 360° feast of iconic and historical landmarks and views from the Marina Bay to the Singapore River, Raffles Place, Merlion Park, Empress Place and the Padang.

Inside the Flyer, there is a free in-capsule guided tours that introduced me to surrounding landmarks and hear interesting stories about Singapore.
