The Singapore Flyer is supposed the be the world’s largest Ferris Wheel. It takes about 30 or 40 minutes to complete one cycle and from it you can see all of Singapore. You can also listen to a taped program about the history of Singapore. It is definitely worth doing.
Feng Shui (the art of receiving positive energy by positioning things correctly to achieve Qi or good engery) played a large part in many of the design aspects of Singapore. The Singapore Flyer is no exception. Originally the Flyer rotated counter-clockwise and it was determined that, according to Feng Shui principals, it should rotate clockwise. And, the change was made.
The top of the Ferris Wheel is 165 meters above the ground. But you ride totally enclosed in this capsule. You never feel like you will fall out and it is not a wobbly ride. It goes very slowly and never actually stops.
Here are some of the sights you will see.
