Singapore Cable Car#15 in Best Things To Do in Singapore
Two lines of the Singapore Cable Car Sky Network allow travelers to take in incredible views of the city as they traverse the area between Mount Faber and Sentosa. Six total stations divide the two lines (three stations each), while the lines themselves are a three- to five-minute walk between the Sentosa Station and the Imbiah Lookout Station. While panoramic views are the Singapore Cable Car’s main appeal, the cars are also an excellent means of transportation.
Past visitors describe their experiences on the Singapore Cable Car as nice and relaxing. Even if you’re afraid of heights, the rides are allegedly so smooth that acrophobia is not a problem. Recent travelers suggest getting a one-day unlimited rides pass, so that you can use the cable cars continuously from open to close.
The Singapore Cable Car runs from 8:45 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, while boarding ends at 9:30 p.m. and ticket sales end at 9:15 p.m. Standard passes cost SG$35 (about $25.81) for adults and SG$25 (about $18.43) for children and includes a single round trip on both the Sentosa and Mount Faber lines. A variety of additional passes for individual lines and evening rides are also available for slightly discounted prices. Travelers can also add the one-day unlimited rides pass onto any of the tickets for SG$10 (about $7.37). The HarbourFront MRT Station is a short walk from the Singapore Cable Car’s HarbourFront Station, while many bus lines also service the area.
