The Singapore Flyer

I went to Singapore during the month of December last year and visited The Singapore Flyer which cost me SGD$30.00 for a 30 minutes ride. The panoramic view of The Land of the Lion was fantastic!

The Singapore Flyer, the world's largest observation wheel, was officially opened on 15th April 2008 by Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Long.

Located at Marina Bay, the Singapore Flyer comprises a 150-metre-diameter wheel and a total height of 165 metres (equivalent to ~ 42 stories high), which is about 30m taller than the famous London Eye and 5m taller than the previous record holder, The Star of Nanchang in Jiangxi, China.

Having visited Singapore, it reminds me how much we can learn from our neighbours. To all our politicians who intend to go for expensive overseas trips to study how to run our country, please don't waste taxpayers' money. We just need to learn from Singapore!
