The Singapore Flyer is a giant observation wheel in downtown Singapore. It opened in 2008. It has 28 air-conditioned capsules, each able to accommodate 28 passengers, and incorporates a three-story terminal building.

Known as The Wheel to the locals, it has an overall height of 165 metres. It looked similar to the London Eye drawing criticism that it lacked originality.

I was down in the area the other day, so I went to take a look to see what’s happening there. As expected, it was not in operation due to a lack of tourists at this time of Covid-19. This is not something locals want to do again and again. So for the moment, all operations are halted, and the place deserted.

A capsule on display. This one shows a dinner setting. You can pre-book the capsules for special occasions, like wedding dinners, birthday dinners etc... I am not sure of the details, but I am sure as long as you can afford the costs, your request will be accommodated, as long as it is within the law and does not compromise the safety measures.

I believe the best time to take a ride – apart on a clear day, is when the sun is setting, and the lights are coming on.

View looks amazing, but I'm afraid of height. Never in my life got on to one of those 😅

I am not a fan of heights either. But I told myself, I must do it at least once. I did it. And once is quite enough. :-)
