Is it better to see the Singapore Flyer at night or by day?

— From singaporeflyer

Both daytime and nighttime views of the Singapore Flyer offer unique and captivating experiences, so the choice ultimately depends on your preferences and what you’re looking to experience.

Seeing the Singapore Flyer during the day provides a clear and panoramic view of the cityscape, Marina Bay, and surrounding areas. 

You’ll be able to appreciate the intricate details of the city’s architecture and the lush greenery. 

The daylight also allows for better visibility and the opportunity to take stunning photographs, especially during the golden hour.

On the other hand, viewing the Singapore Flyer at night offers a magical and dazzling experience. The city comes alive with countless lights, and iconic landmarks such as Marina Bay Sands and the Gardens by the Bay are illuminated. 

The Singapore Flyer is also beautifully lit at night, adding to the enchanting ambience.

For cosy gatherings, Sky View Pavilion’s private rooms are perfect for business lunches or group dinners.

Daily Kopi

Hours: Daily, including public holidays: 10 AM – 9 PM 

Pricing: $


Whether you’re in the mood for a classic kopi with condensed milk or craving a filling kaya toast, you can start your day at Daily Kopi before boarding the Singapore Flyer.

For a light breakfast, I always go for the value set meal which gives me a choice of toast with two soft-boiled eggs and a comforting hot coffee or tea.


— From singaporeflyer

Hours: Daily, 11.30 AM – 8.30 PM (available for takeaway)

Pricing: $$


Want to feel spoilt for choice? Gelatissimo has 32 flavours daily, so take your time ordering (especially after such a thrilling time aboard the Singapore Flyer).  

Its artisanal gelato is made fresh in-store daily with natural ingredients!

You can go for classic chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, or mango. Or do as I do and try newer flavours like banoffee, pistachio, apple pie, salted caramel, and more.

Red Chillies

Hours: Daily, lunch from noon to 3 PM, dinner from 6 PM to 9 PM

Pricing: $$


Red Chillies blends delightful spices for that Indian-Chinese flair. Spice up your evening with the 6 PM dinner set or the a la carte menu featuring delicious curries and dishes like butter chicken and fish masala.

Bhandari’s Saffron

Hours: Thursdays and Sundays, 3 PM – 9 PM; Fridays and Saturdays, 3 PM – 10 PM

Pricing: $$ 


It’s almost an adventure in itself to discover genuine Indian flavours at Bhandari’s Saffron at the foot of the Singapore Flyer. 

I always think it’s a good idea to start with crispy samosas, spring rolls, and succulent chicken tikka. For mains, savour the richness of vegetarian delights like yellow dal tadka, paneer makhani, and aloo gobi. 

Meat eaters can indulge in non-vegetarian deliciousness courtesy of the butter chicken and zesty chilli fish.
