How I enjoyed the Singapore Cable Car despite a Rainy Day

Cable Car

The taxi dropped us in front of the Jewel Box Station near Vivo city Harbour front. The road ahead led us to the reception centre of Sentosa Cable Car. It had been a rainy day since morning and I wished for some sunlight, which happened when we reached Sentosa Islands.

We were welcomed at the reception from where we bought our tickets. The glass panelled lift on the right took us three storeys up to the start point. The adrenaline was racing as we could see the breathtaking view of the entire City. More was about to come.

We boarded our car, a spacious one and it took off almost instantly. Within no time, we found ourselves hanging in the air, with a picturesque view of the country in front.

The cable car was suspended more than 1000 feet high and it was easier to feel the twists in the stomach. As the car moved ahead, the city behind started fading away and we could see more of the Sentosa islands beneath and ahead of us. There was still a little drizzle but it was not blocking the view.

The 1.65 kms cable car drive took us 25 mins and we were into the start point of the Sentosa Islands. We stepped down at the Sentosa Station at Imbiah Lookout from where the monorail would lead us deep into the islands for our next adventure.

Trip Notes:-

  1. The Harborfront station is the easiest way to enter into the Sentosa Islands, if you want to escape the queue. 
  2. There are photographers at the gate who click your pictures before you start the trip. When you reach on the other side, they might ask you to buy one of those. Your choice whether you wish to buy or not. 
  3. The combo passes are a good bargain than to go for single passes as they are value for money.
  4. While you enter inside the Sentosa Islands, check for the hop-on-hop-off buses and trams and their routes. It is a good idea to pick up the resort map to keep your move quick.
