5 Good Reasons Why Singapore Flyer Should Be On Your Itinerary

There’s more to Singapore Flyer than meets the eye. 

While it may have already received its fair share of fame as one of the tallest observation wheels in the world, it doesn’t stop impressing. This gem in the city also offers a wide array of unique experiences that you won’t get anywhere else in the island country. 

Here are five reasons why the Singapore Flyer should be on your itinerary:

It’s the best place to catch a bird’s eye view of Singapore’s wonderful cityscape

There’s no better place to marvel at Singapore’s cityscape from as many angles. On your flight, the wheel turns a full 360° and takes you to a height of 165 meters. Try to spot as many landmarks as you can throughout your 30-minute ride. 


It conceals a beautiful urban secret

Rainforest Discovery is a lush garden that calls nature lovers. Nestled at the heart of the Singapore Flyer’s main Terminal Building, this patch of green in the Lion City’s urbanscape features 5 winding access paths, inviting you to take a leisurely stroll in the midst of gorgeous greenery and cascading water displays after your ride. 


It’s a lofty place to enjoy Singapore’s most iconic drink

Enjoy the indulgent gin-based cocktail Singapore Sling, whilst taking in the beautiful views onboard the Singapore Flyer. Basing on the original 1915 recipe of the world-famous cocktail, each glass served guarantees authenticity in every sip. 


It gives you the rare opportunity to try a real flight simulator

If you’ve always wanted to become a pilot, here’s your chance to take a step closer to your dream! Well, kind of. On your visit, head on over to the Flight Experience, then try your hand at flying an actual 737 simulator. It is the exact same equipment that pilots-in-training use! 


It has great gastronomy

Enjoy delectable local and Cantonese flavors while overlooking the dazzling Marina Bay at the Sky View Pavilion. This elegant restaurant offers carefully curated dishes by Chef Tang Chi Cheung. Specials include roasted Peking duck, braised abalones, and the Singaporean favorite chili crab.
