Ok, well, the biggest round actually. The just opened Singapore Flyer is now the world's biggest - tallest at 165m.
Ever since London started off with the observation wheel (in UK called the London Eye), every other country is bringing it in for tourism purposes.
In Malaysia, it was and still is a main Visit Malaysia feature (till 31 Aug 2008). The Eye On Malaysia is only a temporary one, making it a star showcase this Visit Malaysia.
Anyway, back to Singapore's Flyer - it has overtaken Star of Nanchang which held the world's biggest for 2 years. And if like the Chinese, round things are good luck, then I hope this as well for Singapore.
What you can expect to see here:
A friend of mine has just went for a ride on the wheel, and she liked it so much that she went a second time - at a different time of the day. The view won't change, but from night, she wants to see sunset! And a view she and any other visitors will get - the view of the city's skyline and nearby fun centres from the F1 street circuit to the durian like Esplanade and soon to be opened casino at Marina Bay.
So if you are nearby Singapore or living here yourself, take this chance to sit on the world's biggest. You only have about a year or less before China once again hold its record in Bejing come a year's time in 2009 - the Beijing's Great Observation Wheel (giving Beijing everything great heh :) ).
*Apparently, Shanghai scrapped the idea of the world's largest.
*Just a comparison: ticket price on Eye on Malaysia & The Singapore Flyer - RM15 to S$29.50 - but hey, they are different ya?
Now who says Singapore is boring? :)
*Updated: Made an error that the price for the Flyer was S$40. The full price with packages are at Ticket Rates.
