singapore morning rush 1st part (merlion & the flyer)

(5) the flyer - walked through raffles avenue, arrived at 0800H and waited for 30 minutes due this will open at 0830H. 29.50sgd entrance fee for world's largest observation wheel. with in-flight compass and overlooking the F1 track. The Singapore Flyer is a giant Ferris wheel located in Singapore, constructed in 2005–2008. Described by its operators as an observation wheel, it reaches 42 stories high, with a total height of 165 m (541 ft), making it the tallest Ferris wheel in the world, 5 m (16 ft) taller than the Star of Nanchang and 30 m (98 ft) taller than the London Eye.

(6) helix bridge - went back to raffles avenue. this is also the bridge where will connect the on-going erection of flower-like structure of arts and science museum. The Helix Bridge , previously known as the Double Helix Bridge , is a pedestrian bridge linking Marina Centre with Marina South in the Marina Bay area in Singapore. It was officially opened on 24 April 2010 at 9 pm, however only half was opened due to ongoing construction at the Marina Bay Sands. It is located beside the Benjamin Sheares Bridge and is accompanied by a vehicular bridge, known as the Bayfront Bridge. The entire bridge was opened on 18 July 2010 to complete the entire walkway around Marina Bay.

(7) marina bay sands skypark - went again earlier than the sked, wait and fall in line. stand-by on the base of tower 3 because ticketing office is on the basement for 20sgd. tripod is prohibited so i deposited it together with my bag. viewing deck here is awesome compared to the flyer because MBS is much higher building, with superb and famous infinity pool above, jacuzzi's and the panoramic view of sg's economy. Marina Bay Sands features three 55-story hotel towers which were topped out in July 2009. The three towers are connected by a 1 hectare sky terrace on the roof, named Sands SkyPark.

(8) fountain of wealth - when i visited this place only the water pouring at the center is the operational one. of course, every tourist did, throwing coins after making rounds for 3 times then wish. The Fountain of Wealth is listed by the Guinness Book of Records in 1998 as the largest fountain in the world. It is located in one of Singapore's largest shopping malls, Suntec City. During certain periods of the day, the fountain is turned off and visitors are invited to walk around a mini fountain at the centre of the fountain's base for good luck. At night, the fountain is the setting for laser performances, as well as "live" song and laser message dedications between 8pm to 9pm daily. It is situated in such a way the fountain is the hub of the shopping mall.
