There are plenty of things to do and places to see in Singapore. Unfortunately, some of these attractions are so popular that they attract big crowds which some may find overwhelming. To help you manage your expectations, here are five tourist attractions in Singapore to skip if you don’t like it too busy.
The Singapore Flyer was once the tallest observation wheel in the world until 2014, but remains Asia’s largest observation wheel at 165m tall. It draws crowds for its prime position with panoramic unblocked views of the Marina Bay area and its architectural landmarks, where you can even see parts of neighbouring Malaysia and Indonesia on a clear day.
An adult ticket on the Singapore Flyer is not a cheap price to pay for just half an hour’s worth of scenery-chewing. Add on an overpriced drink and your ticket more than doubles in price – pretty steep considering there are plenty of rooftop F&B establishments in the area where you can enjoy potential happy hours, table service and as much of a view as you like for the same price or cheaper.
