Tiger Sky Tower, situated on Sentosa Island, offers scenic views over the city from Asia’s tallest freestanding observation tower. The revolving observation platform rises to a height of 430 feet (131 meters), giving guests 360-degree views across Singapore and the Southern Islands. On a clear day, it’s possible to see as far as Jurong Bahru in Malaysia and Palau Bintan in Indonesia.
Unlike many observation towers, where an elevator shuttles guests to the top, visitors enter the disc-shaped, climate-controlled cabin at ground level. The cabin begins to slowly revolve as it slowly ascends (about 4 feet per second) to its maximum height high above Sentosa. In effect, the observation platform is its own elevator. On the ride up, recorded commentary highlights the history of Sentosa and highlights various points of interest visible from the platform.
While Tiger Sky Tower closes at 9pm, the last ride begins at 8:45. The tower can be reached by taking the Sentosa Express to Imbiah Station, the Sentosa Bus to Imbiah Lookout Bus Stop or by cable car to the Sentosa Cable Car Station.
