Visit to Singapore Flyer



I was feeling bored after finishing my school lesson pretty early.. So I decided to go to Singapore's latest attraction which is the Singapore Flyer..

It's a few minutes walk away from the Esplanade (another attraction) but problem was, I came at the wrong time.. Rain was pouring heavily at town and I was left to quickly take some shots from the roof of the Esplanade..

The Singapore Flyer, so close yet so far..


View of the city from the Esplanade..



I was able to continue my journey to the Flyer when the rain stopped half an hour later.. On my way there, I took random but intersting shots..

Firstly will be this.. This is the base platform so that the people can set up the lightings and stuff for the F1 race event in September..



So what is beyond the Flyer??



A few more metres of walking and I've finally reached at the base of the Flyer.. A magnificent view on ground level..


The view from inside the capsules must be awesome..



So without waiting anymore, I went into the building without hesitation.. Was struck with awe and happiness when I saw the boarding and alighting area for the Flyer up close..



What excite me most is the garden that have been built under the platform.. A very nice garden too..



Though I wonder what info can they provide with an OS that is already shut down..



The platform up close..



And there were smoke machines making smoke effects in the garden..

Not just 1..


But a total of 3 of them..



Enjoy the rest of the shots... ^^









This looks kinda weird for me to take a picture in the toilet.. But guess what, there is something good about going to the toilet..


You see, since the shopping complex is open air, sometimes the place can get so hot that you felt that you gonna melt soon..

However, the toilets in the shopping complex have super-cold aircons that can freeze you back to normal.. The best thing is that they are in full blast so you can enjoy the aircon in the toilet as long as you want.. ^^

If aircon isn't enough for you, you can visit some shops that sells gelato like this one..


More shots of the Flyer..

After taking alot of pictures of the Singapore Flyer, its time to head back home.. But not before catching some indoor performance by a guy named 'Zingo'???


He's good in making music out from a bicycle.. O.O!

  1. Those shots of the Flyer would've been great, if only the sky were clear.. ^^;

    The capsule look like drum canisters turned on it's side..

    And the garden looks great!
