I did a 24-hour Singapore Stopover on my way through and had to visit the new Singapore Flyer, the world's biggest ferris wheel - sorry, "moving observation platform". I'd been on some big ferris wheels before and was pleased to see this one had very large and stable observation cabins.They easily fit a couple of dozen people, but while we were there, just 8 or so. the Flyer revolves very slowly so that you hardly feel you are moving. The views are spectacular, across the whole of Singapore city and the impressive port (container ships everywhere). We got a great view of some of the new architectural art being built in the city - the durian-inspired buildings, the Marina Mandarin which sports what looks like a giant ark atop three towers, a helix bridge said to be the world's first curved bridge; and a still-under-construction events centre featuring outstanding curved glass domes.
The Flyer was a great novelty on the upward flight, but the downward part went a little slowly for my 9-year-old son. I was in no rush, and I appreciated the air-conditioning.
The Singapore Flyer does sightseeing during the day and dining platforms in the evenings. Worth a visit even if you're on a short stopover.

Thank you and your team for a job well done!
It has been a wonderful and awesome experience for the birthday gals. Your staff have been most accommodating and patient with our requests. No words could describe how grateful I am for the set-up. And this experience and memories will stay with us for a very long time.
Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Kudos to your team!

I booked the Moët and Chandon flight online before we left New Zealand and it was my favourite memory of Singapore.
When we arrived we got to wait in the air-conditioned lounge as opposed to standing in a queue. When it was our time we were escorted to the Moët and Chandon Capsule. When we entered, a waiter poured our drinks and then excused himself. Much to our delight, nobody else got on and we were the only two in the capsule for the trip. We felt very spoilt watching the other capsules packed full of people, as music played in the background.
We went on the 7pm flight, which was amazing and allowed us to get a magnificent view of Singapore in the setting sun. The full rotation took approximately 30 minutes.
In the days following, I checked out how much a glass of Moët was on the wine list of several bars and found that taking into account the cost of a Moët, we paid no more than the normal ticket price. I definitely recommend buying one of the Cocktail flights or the Moët flight when you book. It was worth the additional money.
Thank you Singapore Flyer! You created a night that I will never forget.

I was so glad we have bought cocktail flight tickets. Because of that, we were taken straight to our capsule, skipping the long queue. We were alone in the capsule and we could fully enjoy the panoramic views over Singapore, and loved every second of the flight. We had cocktails plus a free souvenir glass to take home! I think these were the best-spent money on our holiday in Singapore. We recommend this experience highly!

I would like to thank Joseph Ravindran Christie of Flyer’s Guest Services for making our trip to Singapore Flyer a very special one. Three couples went to the Flyer to renew our wedding vows, celebrating our 25th anniversary this year. Joseph was kind and very accommodating to our requests. The morning spent at the Flyer was most enjoyable!

We booked the Singapore Sling package online before arriving in Singapore. There was a promotion on at the time so the tickets cost approx S$55 each. We had the cabin to ourselves and the cocktail made it a very nice way to see the Singapore skyline. Definitely worth it.
