In which I go on a big wheel
The Singapore Flyer is currently the largest observation wheel in the world standing at 165m(541ft), offering 360 degree panoramic views across Singapore. The London Eye in comparison is only 135m. There are plans afoot for Statten Island , Las Vegas and Moscow to build higher observation wheels however.
What excited me most about the Singapore Flyer was the fact that it was soooo close to the Singapore F1 circuit pit stops. Now, I’m not as big a fan of Formula 1 as I used to be, but how is this for a view?!
Not bad, eh? I just missed the Singapore race as it was the weekend after I left. Gutted, but I was also told that Singapore would be chockablock during that weekend, so maybe I got away lightly!
as well as the Marina Barrage really clearly.
The view across the main marina and Marina Bay Sands was also stunning. The hotel stands out in the skyline and is really the centre of attention. You cannot miss it!
After my lovely trip, I indulged in nachos and a Singapore Sling, while writing postcards as you do – I really love nachos and I’d definitely give these an 8 out for 10 as I got offered more sauce, but I’d have liked some meat to go with it!
