I have a genuine fear of heights. But many times in my life I have proven to myself (always accidentally) that there is no fear I cannot conquer. When my siblings suggested we take ride the cable car in Singapore, I immediately agreed because I read in the website that the trip is only 5 minutes. I think I can handle five minutes of being suspended on air inside a box (which was actually spacious enough for six people). To my horror, my companions took advantage of all the cable car rides, which totalled eight rides in all!
Fee: SG$33 (for adults), SG$22 (for children) for the Mount Faber + Sentosa line. This ticket automatically gives you entry to Sentosa Island (which has an entrance fee of SG$4). When we got to Sentosa Island, we realized everything has a price except walking around so that is just what we did. I booked through Klook.com and saved a few pesos. You also do not need to print the voucher, you only need to present your phone for the code.
How to Get There: We rode the MRT and stopped at the Harbourfront station. We toured Vivo City for a while before proceeding to the cable car building, which can be reached through a bridge near KFC in Vivo City. Just follow the directions or ask around.
Must or Not: Must! Ok, I was scared the whole time and I felt like crying every time the cable car gets pushed off the platform. But the photography opportunities were GREAT and MANY! The Mount Faber line offered a really nice view of Singapore city scape, the harbor front, the ships anchored from afar. I’m excited to see my husband’s photographs from the cable car. The Sentosa line though, I think, was not worth it because there were not many great photography opportunities. It would have been great to ride the cable car by sunset but we were already tired by that time so we went home early. That will be the first and last time for me though.
