Wordless Wednesday: Singapore Flyer

Singapore Flyer
Singapore Flyer
Singapore Flyer
For the information of those who are not living in the Singapore, please allow me to say a few things about it. My first reaction when I heard that Singapore is building the Flyer - reproduction of the London Eye? Not very original and creative. London Eye was then the world's largest observation wheel. Now Singapore Flyer took over the title ... at least until the next one comes up. Standing at a stunning 165m, the Flyer is the height of a 42-storey building – that’s some 30 metres taller than the famed London Eye.

According to the
9 Great Reasons To Visit article from the offical website, "It’s the only place to see Singapore’s magnificent cityscape. As the wheel turns, you’ll be treated to a visual 360° feast of iconic and historical landmarks and views from the Marina Bay to the Singapore River, Raffles Place, Merlion Park, Empress Place and the Padang. There is no other place in Singapore that offers these breathtaking, panoramic views." You can find more information at: http://www.singaporeflyer.com/

How beautiful, as others have already said - I'd love to visit Singapore one day!

Nope, it's not an everyday date with Ben N' Jerry but it'd be fun if it could happen without the bad reaction. :-þ

Happy WW

Great photos. Boy, that thing is big. I don't think I could manage even a much smaller less scary one. Makes a great photo, though.

I want to ride it, but only if it goes fast. I swear that thing looks exactly like a bike wheel.

BTW, I've revealed the secret to yesterday's WW post!

I saw that from a distance when the last time I visited SG. I was wondering what was that! So it is that! A nice place to visit for my next trip to Singapore. Always there is something new in that city.

Hi bk,
Thanks for visiting my blog! would you like to exchange links?

By the way about that Flyer I haven't tried it but it really looks fun! I wanna try it sometime. And I also heard that China is building like that to beat the Singapore's record.
I'm just not sure if it is so true, or just a spread of rumors.
Anyway, I'll just add your blog, hope you don't mind.
Ypou can add me as Life in Manila

@ Chie, pardon me that you have not included your link in your comment and thus I am not able to add in your blog. Not too sure if China is building one or not but it is a matter of time whereby another one will be built to beat the Singapore record :)
