The Singapore Flyer (Singapore's version of London Eye or Malaysia's Eye on Malaysia)

The London Eye is famous. It's where tourist in London will definitely take a ride on. I was fortunate enough to take a ride in it and wow! what a view of London.

Here's a link to the London Eye by London DP's Ham.

Kuala Lumpur also unveiled a similar giant Ferris Wheel called Eye on Malaysia. Take a look at KL Daily Photo - Edwin's Posting of Eye on Malaysia here.

Singapore's building one too. It's called the Singapore Flyer. It is still under construction. But the base structure's up. This is how it looks like right now. When it's ready, it will be another great Singapore attraction.



Right now you have to be a bit imaginative ok? Imagine all the 32 capsules that goes on the giant observation wheel. hehe..

OK, if you can't imagine, go to the Singapore Flyer Website to have a sneak peak.


I can't wait for it to be ready and get up there! Mean time while I wait, I should go to up KL to take a ride at KL's version :-)

From afar and partially built, looks like those Viking rides found in those amusement parks. Will they change this name -S'pore Flyer...? Not a nice name

brennan said...

Singapore Flyer - that name sounds familiar. Is it refering to the Singaporeans emigrating from our country every year?

belle vue de tout en haut, et belle photo. dommage qu'il n'y est pas de grande roue à Evry.

beautiful sight of all in top, and beautiful photo. it's a pity that it is not there large wheel with Evry.
