New Cable car ride at Sentosa

Kate has never been on the cable car, and I asked if the older kids were keen to go, and they said yes! It's been quite a few years since I last took them on the cable car. We headed to Mount Faber for the ride into Sentosa, and it turned out to be a really enjoyable day out.

Cheap thrill #1:

The ticketing lady asked if we had any NTUC card which I did have (so auntie, right?) and it allowed us UNLIMITED rides for the day! We could even hop on and off as we wished. Perfect!

What a view!
There were lots to see from up there, and we asked Kate if she could see this and that. "Look at the cruise ship. Can you see it? There's even a swimming pool in it!"

She got the hang of it and started pointing things out to us and asked if we could see it.

The cable car seems bigger than I remembered it to be, and can fit 8 people.

I spy...
There's so much going on in Sentosa these days, and we could even hear the shouts coming from the people having fun in Adventure Cove.

Birds eye view
Cheap thrill #2:

We discovered that there is a new cable car line within Sentosa! I was so glad we were upgraded to unlimited rides because Kate kept saying, " I want to go round and round."


When you alight at Sentosa, head towards this grey building, and take the escalator up.

We could see the activities going on along the beach and my mum remarked that it looked like we were overseas.

Yup, it sure did feel like we were on holiday. Doing the touristy thing going round and round like we had nothing to do all day. Kids have a lot to teach us about slowing down, don't they?

We lost count of the number of times we went round (the ticketing people stopped asking to check our tickets) and finally Kate declared, "I'm hungry." The older girls were so glad to hear those words.

"Hmm, not bad.."

We had tea at Spuds & Apron to end our very relaxing day out.

Sane tip: If you are looking for an activity where you don't have to do much yet the kids are kept entertained, this is it! We went at 3pm, and it was a bit hot. Best to enjoy the ride in the evenings. Opens everyday from 8.45am - 10pm.

Save tip: Tickets which include both the Mount Faber and Sentosa lines are $19 for adults and $12 for kids and senior citizen (locals). You can top up $10 for unlimited rides for the day which will be waived with the NTUC card.
