Singapore Flyer is the name of the city's iconic observation wheel and tourists have loved it since its completion in 2008. The wheel's height of 165 m above the land equals the height of a 42-storey building and makes it the largest ferris wheel in Asia and the second largest in the world. A ride around takes 30 minutes. You'll rise well above Marina Bay, and observe its business district, the Gardens by the Bay, the river and far beyond. This is going to become the most panoramic half an hour in Singapore.

The attraction is open to tourists in all seasons. The wheel operates daily from 8:30 am to 10:30 pm with the last ride at 10 pm. The ticket counter is open from 8 am to 10 pm. Some prefer to view the city's skyline during the day, while others choose to marvel at the city of lights. Both experiences are delightful in their own way.
