Singapore Flyer

May 26, 2010

Singapore Flyer (late evening)

The Singapore Flyer is the world’s tallest observation wheel (read: ferris wheel). A normal ride costs S$29.50/person, which lasts a little over 30 minutes. The half an hour feels very fast. I think that’s because I was busy with the camera settings instead of marveling the scenery. Luckily I got a 20% off the price (I paid around S$23/person), not really sure what promo that was.

Anyway, we started the ride at around 7 pm in the evening, hoping to catch the sunset and city lights during the flight. The sunset was there, but unfortunately the flight was over before the sky could get dark enough. Oh well, that means I could snap this photo from the ground side instead. Special thanks to wortel’s PL filter and tripod.

Now I want a tripod and a PL filter.

Hint for tourists: The closest MRT station to the Flyer is the newly opened Promenade station (Circle Line). Now you won’t accidentally hop on the wrong bus like we did, (and I’m not even considered a tourist anymore!).

If you’re feeling rich, they also have “special” rides such as the Full Butler Sky Dining (S$249/couple) and the Champagne Flight (S$69).
