Tourist trap or not, the Singapore Flyer is a great way to catch some nice views of Singapore! I got here in the morning and it was not crowded! Before getting to the wheel, you can spend a few minutes in the museum like room to check out some videos and attractions they have on display!
Line was short and I was able to score my own capsule, YESSS!!! The capsules are air conditioned so they are comfortable and very easy to move around! Each angle was a postcard worthy portrait waiting to happen! You can spot many of Singapore's iconic attractions as well!
Just a fun fact, the Singapore Flyer is the biggest observation wheel in the world (Yes it's supposedly bigger than the London Eye.) The whole ride takes about thirty minutes and I thought it was worth the time, specially if you're in the city for just a few days!
I would recommend going up the sky-walk for some stunning city views and city lights! The entrance fee to this part of the park is only $5 SGD! I only waited about twenty minutes in line which I didn't mind! While in line I was also able to catch the nightly "light show". The Flower Domes gives a light show performance which syncs to music of all kinds. It was a bit cheesy and nice at the same time!
From the top of the sky-walk you'll be able to capture and see the beauty of Singapore! The skyline views were amazing (I kinda wish I did the same thing during the day).
