From our place, it was a 10 minutes ride to the Fullerton Hotel. Then we cross the street to the Merlion Statue. From there we walk to the Esplanade. Then walk a little more further to the Flyers. It was quite a walk, rather than calling a cab which will cost you around 10 – 15 dollars or taking a bus which you will end up walking again.
When we arrive, we kinda take a few minutes breather before going to the ticketing counter. For tourist going to the Singapore Flyer, don’t forget to bring your passport to the flight. They give discount (around 29% discount) from 29 May 2009 to 26 July 2009 from 8.30am to 10pm.
Then we follow the instruction going to the Flyer. We need to go to the third floor of the building. We kinda came along with a tour group which the guide was explaining how to ride the Flyer. Because the Flyer is doing a none stop rotation, we will need to climb aboard while it is still moving. Don’t worry the Flyer is rotation very slow even a child can hop aboard with ease.
The Singapore Flyer is rotating clockwise which is a sign of luck, because it is following the sun in its rotation. From the observation flatform you can see the:
The two golden dome of the mosque signifies the location of Little India.
Raffles Place is located in the downtown and central area of Sinapore, the tallest buildings and landmarks of the country are locatd here.
Marina Bay to the Singapore River
If you look closely at the COnrad Bldg. you will see a number 13. The number 13 is lucky for Conrad. Thats why he display it in his building.
The trip won’t be especial without my loving partner.
I would recommend to have your flight at night. You will get great pictures of Singapore.
