I have always been someone who likes to do, see and experience as much as I can in life and this philosophy is strengthened when on holidays. I’m a Teacher so I don’t earn a large amount of money so often when I travel I have made quite a few sacrifices to get there (especially because I always have to travel during school holidays which is twice as expensive). So why not make the most of it when you are there? I have been told that I have a “childish enthusiasm” for life, meaning I am curious and inquisitorial, throwing myself into it full throttle. I really believe you get out of it what you put into it. This attitude is how I found the 3 places for the best views in Singapore.
1. Marina Bay Sands SkyPark Observation Deck
Here you will get a fantastic view of Gardens by the Bay which is right next door, Marina Bay, Singapore Flyer and Singapore Strait scattered with ships, unfortunately the Infinity Pool is not included as it is only available to guests.
The prices is $23 per adult and $17 for children, however, access to the SkyPark is free for guests and if you have a reservation for one of the restaurants (ĆE LA VI, Flight Bar and Lounge or Sky on 57) you also should get free access to the SkyPark (please confirm this upon making a reservation). Be prepared though that these restaurants require a minimum spend, around $80 per person.
2. Singapore Flyer
Almost like every other country that has a giant ferris wheel, the best views are on the clearest of days. We were lucky to impulsively decide to jump on and have views that enabled us to see as far as Indonesia. Taller than the London Eye the Singapore Flyer provides views that are truly spectacular and well worth waiting for a clear day.
Prices vary depending on the experience so best to check the website, but if you buy an open top bus ticket they will give you a discount.
3. Singapore Cable Car
This one is probably my favourite as it also gives you free access to Sentosa Island. Open from 8:45am -10pm (with last boarding at 9:30pm) and given the monorail into Sentosa is $4 per person it is the perfect way to combine an activity, sightseeing and a theme park in Sentosa Island, as most parks are open 10am – 7pm.
For the Mount Faber line and Sentosa Island line it is $29 per adult and $18 per child, and well worth combing the two lines for the bonus views of the main island. For an extra $10 you can get unlimited rides for the day.
So there you have it, I have decided to let the pictures speak for themselves. If you have any more questions feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
