Singapore is expensive. Yes, I am putting that out there.

We visited for four nights on our move back to Australia from Cambodia in January 2017, and burnt through our cash in the first two days. Although public transport is relatively cheap, you need to use it often to get from one location to another, so it does add up.

Added to this is the cost of visiting attractions. Most attractions have an entrance fee, and one of the most expensive attractions you will find is the Singapore Flyer.

Launched in 2008, this 165 metre observation wheel is one of the largest in the world. It gives you a bird’s eye view of the entire island city, including landmarks such as Singapore River, Raffles Place, Merlion Park, and Empress Place. Although terrifying at first, the capsule is actually very safe and gives you the opportunity to witness gorgeous angles of attractions that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to see.

We visited just after opening time, and were able to secure a capsule all to ourselves. Because of this, I truly believe that the $33SGD fee was worth it. So, if you are in Singapore, definitely take a trip on the Flyer!
