It promises more than just a view, but a panorama that captures Marina Bay’s skyline with a glimpse of neighbouring countries Malaysia and Indonesia.If you haven’t been on the Singapore Flyer, then you haven’t officially been to Singapore.You might also swing into some good, authentic Asian Fengshui when you ride in one of Singapore Flyer’s 28 capsules, each with a maximum capacity of 28 persons. The number 28 means “double prosperity” or “easy to prosper” in Cantonese.

Leave the city behind and head north to Mandai and visit one of the world’s top and most beautiful zoos. The Singapore Zoo is spread over 28 hectares and is a haven to over 3,600 mammals, birds and reptiles including some rare and endangered species. Natural barriers like streams, rock walls and beautiful landscaping are used to separate the animals from visitors thus creating an “open zoo” effect.
