The Best of Singapore (Part 2 of 3)
After roaming around Singapore’s rich natural reserve, it’s the city sights that we wandered the next days. First off is the now famous Singapore Flyer. With the construction of the flyer, the country has a new towering landmark next to Merlion. It is currently considered the largest observation wheel in the world; even larger than London Eye. It has a total of 28 air-conditioned capsules that serve as the observation decks. As soon as you get into the capsule, you will be taken into a half an hour tour of the city and its fascinating history. A free radio will be given to the guest and you just have to follow the voice prompt for the narration. No city cab driver is needed to know the bits and pieces of the country. It’s a no-sweat kind of sight-see, truly enjoyable.
As the flyer slowly ascends, you will be entertained by a panoramic view of the entire city and the popular uniquely Singapore milestones such as:
The increasingly becoming popular Hippo Tour. We were not able to try this one, but will definitely look forward to it when we get back on January.
During this time of the year, Orchard Road truly enchants with the vibrant holiday decors and lights. We enjoyed numerous leisure walks day and night.
And finally to find the right "pasalubong" (souvenirs) to bring home, Bugis Village is the place to be! It is home to a wide array of choices of goods at very affordable prices.
