One way to get to Sentosa is through the cable car from Mount Faber or at the HarbourFront Centre. But since we got to Sentosa by a tour bus, we still went for a cable car ride just to get the feel of it. If it were a regular trip we would have paid SGD10 (it’s only SGD4.50 for a child) for a one-way trip from HarbourFront Tower Two or SGD11 (that’s SGD5.50 for kids) for a return trip. But since we availed of the Imbiah Lookout Package, we just showed our pass and we hopped in and took the trip to Mount Faber. It is even much more expensive if we were to take the glass cabin because the return trip would cost SGD15 per adult and SGD8 per child.
The Cable Car ride took us about 60 minutes over the Singapore Sea to the middle of the HarbourFront Tower Two. Then the ride continued to the Jewel Box atop Mount Faber. Mount Faber is filled with greens and trees. Some houses with red brick roofs are seen from above. They are far from each other and are very costly given the location.
The cable cars are safe and reliable. The cables, which are purchased in high quality materials, are good to last for five years but the operators change the cables every two years to maintain its high standard.
Both the Mount Faber and Sentosa Cable Car Stations have souvenir shops where one can get miniature cable cars and other interesting items. They also have dining places near them that make it convenient and comfortable for visitors to relax and grab something to munch after an adrenalin-rush ride.
The cable cars are operational from 8:30am to 11pm, enough time for you to spend a whole day at Sentosa. For more info on Mount Faber, visit www.mountfaber.com.sg.
