If you want to see the Singapore skyline from 165 metres high,?Singapore Flyer?can help you! We have been to the Singapore Flyer a couple of times, and the scenery just blew us away?
Maybe you have been to the London Eye, which is very much similar to the Flyer, which gives you a 360-degree view of the whole city. But we can assure you it can be a whole new experience for you.With that said, let us show you what you will ‘See’ there, and the awesome pictures you might take.
Breathtaking Skyline of Singapore
Talking about the experiences on board Singapore Flyer, it’s really difficult to describe them with words?but it’s a lot easier (and better) to do it with photographs!
And that’s probably what you’ll do if you’re on board the Flyer – taking photographs for the magnificent skyline of Singapore! A ride, which lasts about 30 minutes, gives you a bird’s eye view of the Singapore’s?Central Business District.
In July 2008, we went on our first flight on the Singapore Flyer. That time was just a few months after their opening. But we just couldn’t wait to see what’s fun over there! So we bought the tickets, and off we go!
Other than just the amazing skyline, we were also fortunate to catch the National Day rehearsal on the floating platform, from a hundred metres high! Then, the rehearsal had just ended with the fireworks – we caught them with our own eyes!
But sadly, we didn’t manage to catch in our cameras. We were just too engrossed with the fireworks which seemed to blast it in the sky, right beside us.
If you catch the fireworks on air, do share it with everyone here, okay?
We board the capsule late in the evening, and what made our ride even better was that we managed to get the whole capsule to us only!?(We didn’t booked the whole capsule, but we were just lucky there’s no crowd that day!)
This gave us freedom to move freely, and also got some self-timed shots too!
Other than taking a ride, the Singapore Flyer is also a fun hangout and gathering location with our friends. That is then we realized that the Flyer itself is ‘photogenic’ too!
We took this during the?day.
Do you know that the capsules glow in the?dark. This was taken when I ran pass it during my 21km marathon run at 5.45am early in the morning.
