Expert review of Singapore Flyer

The world’s largest observation wheel.

The Singapore Flyer is one of the world’s largest observation wheels, standing 165meters above ground level. But I can’t help feel sorry for the Flyer, since the Marina Bay Sands SkyPark opened next door, it’s pretty much stolen its thunder for the best views of the city-state. Still, it’s a pleasant flight and a wonderful 360-degree view of Singapore’s iconic landmarks like Merlion Park, Raffles Place as well as the Singapore River. On a clear day you can even see Indonesia and the Straits of Johor, Malaysia.

Price advice: 

 An adult flight is $29.50, children under 12 years fly for $20.65 and senior citizens are charged $23.60. If you want to book a private capsule, it will cost around $2000 during peak times - $1500 for the capsule and at least another $500 worth of food and beverages.
