Top Sights in Singapore
At a height of 165 meters, the Flyer only recently surrendered its position as the tallest ferris wheel in the world. Nevertheless, the best views of Singapore perfectly sum up the rise of this triumphant modern metropolis!
Singapore's importance as a colonial trading post is rendered in this beautiful old courthouse by the mouth of the river. It's now home to the Asian Civilizations Museum.
Half fish, half lion, the Merlion fountain on the river's south bank originates in the legend of Sang Nila Utamathe – the prince who named the island "Singapura" (Lion City).
Though they appear as two huge fishing nets cast out into Marina Bay, these striking buildings actually house a world-leading concert hall and theater.
In 2008 Singapore integrated an F1 circuit into its urban roads. Although you and your rental car can't join in, on race days you can watch the action from the Flyer!
That's right! The Singapore Flyer is so high that on a clear day the panoramas extend well beyond the city-state's borders!
The Singapore Flyer is open until 10pm, and Singapore is an incredible city to see at night! From sunset onwards the city is at its most striking, yet the Flyer gets considerably less busy, perhaps because the downside is not being able to see as far.
Each rotation takes 30 minutes, although you should plan to spend at least an hour at the attraction, if not longer.
Tickets can be bought on-site, but online discounts are available if you decide to book in advance.
The Singapore Flyer has its own parking lot. It costs $1.50 per half-hour, but this is capped at $15 on weekdays.

What People Are Saying about Singapore Flyer
When I purchased it online, I had some may worries that this will be waste of time and money. However, when I reached Shangi Airport in Singapore and walked to the counter to collect my cards, used the next day and found how practical they are in saving time and money, I felt how real it is and how smart a choice I made.
We took the Green and the Orange Route tours spaced by one hour, a total of three hours. We had only half a day to take a tour. For such short time, this was a great tour for me with my family.
Signs at the various 'hop-on-hop- off' bus stops would definitely have helped. Enjoyednthe trip. Thanks! Monica + 2 Australia
At the beginning I got my doubts, since It was the first time I booked a tour service by Internet. But my Mother and I were nicely surprised not only about the responsibility and amazing service provided since the very beginning by email. The most fastest response to our most single needs. From the pick up service to our hotel absolutely on time until the wonderful sightseeing of Singapore. Nice people, marvelous service, we were able to visit the most important places in just one day. If you ever go to Singapore, I highly recommend this City Tour!!!... Completely satisfied.
Bit of a pain to have to go to Chinatown to get ticket. Would have expected once you had bought online upon could just use your phone to gain entry. Be mindful of who you will be experiencing ride with, ie young children.
