The Singapore Cable Car provides a 360-degree panoramic view of city’s best attractions, including the Singapore harbor, Sentosa Island, and the city skyline. More than 100 cabins carry passengers along 3 miles (5 kilometers) of cableway. Tickets grant access to a museum detailing the history of the cable car system.
The Singapore Cable Car system includes two different lines, the Mount Faber Line connecting Faber Peak and Sentosa Island, and the Sentosa Line connecting various island attractions. Passengers can purchase tickets for one line or a combo ticket that includes a ride on both.
Couples looking for a romantic night out can tuck into a private 4-course dinner on a special dining car passing between Mount Faber and Sentosa. The cable car is also an option on the Singapore Pass.
Things to Know Before You Go
- The Singapore Cable Car is a must-ride for families, couples, and first-time visitors.
- Book your cable car tickets ahead to avoid the hassle of waiting in line.
- Choose between a single line ticket or a Sky Pass that gets you on both the Mount Faber and Sentosa lines.
- Don’t forget to bring your camera; the views from the cable car are certainly photo-worthy.
How to Get There
Visitors can board the cable car from several points in the city, including Sentosa, HarbourFront, Merlion, and Siloso Point stations.
When to Get There
It’s best to ride the cable car on a clear day when the views are unobstructed by low-lying clouds. While rain is frequent in Singapore throughout the year, November, December, and January tend to be the wettest months. Expect long lines during national holidays, especially Lunar New Year.
Things to Do on Mount Faber and in Sentosa
Riding the Singapore Cable Car is only part of the fun, as both Mount Faber and Sentosa are packed with attractions. The former is home to several restaurants, shops, lookout points, and the elevated Forest Walk, while the latter is where you’ll find the Tiger Sky Tower (Singapore’s tallest observatory), Madame Tussauds, Adventure Cove Waterpark, and Universal Studios Singapore, among others.
