The world’s largest Observation Wheel and one of Asia’s biggest tourist attractions.  At 165 metres high, Singapore Flyer is some 30 metres taller than the London Eye wheel.

It was conceived and designed by Dr. Kisho Kurokawa and DP Architects, Singapore.  It held its groundbreaking ceremony in September 2005 and was launched in 2008.

Each capsule has a 28-person capacity, and each revolution takes approximately 30 minutes with visitors enjoying a panorama that captures Marina Bay’s skyline with a glimpse of neighbouring Malaysia and Indonesia.

Located a 5-minute walk away from MRT – Promenade Station (Circle Line, CC4).  Take Exit A and follow the blue pedestrian signs to Singapore Flyer.

Sentosa Island | map

Sentosa 圣陶沙 is a popular island resort in Singapore that has a 2m coastline.  Whilst not the most beautiful in Asia (by quite a long way), it provides the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Sentosa Island is also home to a number of tourist attractions including Universal Studios Singapore.

Tanjong Beach, a relatively more secluded part of Sentosa, tends to attract more gay sunbathers, particularly on a Sunday afternoon.

Weekday opening times: 10:00 - 19:00

Weekend opening times: 10:00 - 20:00

Universal Studios Singapore markets itself as a ‘one of a kind theme park in Asia’.  And this is very true.  It is the centerpiece of the transformation of Sentosa Island into a world-class resort.  Construction started in April 2008, and the park was formally opened on May 28, 2011.

The 49-acre park has 24 attractions, of which 18 are original or specially adapted.  There are seven themed zones, each based on a blockbuster movie or a television show with related attractions, characters, dining and shopping areas.

The world’s tallest pair of roller coasters are based on Battlestar Galactica.  There is a castle from the world of Shrek and a live music show ‘Monster Rock’ featuring the infamous Universal Monsters and the Transformers 3D thrill ride.  More than enough for any screaming queen.

MRT – Take the North East Line to Harbour Front Station and change for the Sentosa Express or RWS 8 Bus.

The Helix Bridge, Singapore

The Helix Bridge

Marina Bay | map

Opened on April 24, 2010, The Helix Bridge is the world’s first curved bridge, linking Marina Bay to Marina Centre.

This 280-metre pedestrian linkway (the longest in Singapore) features the world’s first ‘double helix’ structure.  Inspired by the yin & yang concept in Asian culture, the architecturally unique bridge is said to bring wealth, happiness and prosperity to Marina Bay.

The bridge is an engineering masterpiece assembled with great precision.  The curved design is created by two opposing spiral steel members, held together by a series of connecting struts, symbolising “life and continuity”, “renewal”, “everlasting abundance” and “growth”,  and resembles the structure of DNA.
