The Height of Luxury
The Singapore Flyer currently stands as the largest observation wheel in the world and is taller than a 40 storey sky scraper.
There is a spiritual beauty in the design of the wheel - there are 28 capsules designed to carry 28 passengers each. The number 28 scientifically means to double prosperity, and therefore has good karma, or feng shui. As a result, the Flyer is jokingly nicknamed the Wheel of Fortune.
Fortunate indeed those are who have the opportunity to take flight on the wheel as from the top you are treated to a view which spans for 45 kilometres. The horizon is shared with Malaysia and Indonesia. Each flight lasts for just over 30 minutes, and gives plenty of time for much picture taking!
In addition to taking to the skies, your Singapore Flyer ticket will also permit you to step into the Journey of Dreams. There is vast history surrounding the Flyer and this is a wonderful opportunity to learn how the wheel was built, the initial concepts and the vision of the country's forefathers in constructing such a monument.
If you would like to experience a single rotation in lavish luxury you can opt to have a Moet and Chandon Champagne Flight which will provide an elegant flute of champagne for your consumption as you take in the exclusive view. If you really want to take to the skies in style then you can hire an entire capsule for up to 22 guests where there will be a flow of champagne, personal bartenders, free access to the Flyer Lounge and much more.
Whichever your preference of experiencing its magic, the Singapore Flyer is a must do.
