There is an estimated 1.6 million foreigners who flock the zoo every year to see the world’s finest primate species in one place. The zoo is clean and very inviting to visitors with its well reared animals, lush green vegetations, and habitat space.
The largest observation wheel in the world is the Singapore Flyer wheel. While on a vacation to the city-state, spare time to hop onto the wheel and enjoy magnificent 360 degrees views of historical and iconic landmarks allover the city and particularly along the banks of Singapore River. Before boarding this flight, take time off your busy schedule for a Journey of Dreams session to learn more about Singapore and the history of the Flyer. There is no romantic experience that comes close to enjoying the marveling night views of Singapore with your lover from atop the Flyer Wheel.
