Imbiah Lookout Sentosa, Singapore
The Jewel Cable Car, linking Mount Faber to the Harbourfront and Sentosa, is one of the more pleasant ways to get an aerial view of Singapore.
Start your journey at Harbourfront and from here travel up to Mount Faber, covered by a secondary rain forest and one of the oldest parks in Singapore. Faber Point, a leisurely 10 minute walk from the Cable Car landing station is the highest point of the park and provides panoramic views over the city to the north and over Sentosa and the surrounding islands to the south. Also on Mount Faber, you will find the Jewel Box bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a drink with a view before continuing on your journey.
From Mount Faber it is a twelve minute ride back through the Harbourfront and on to Sentosa, crossing Keppel Harbour at 90 metres above the water. Here you are rewarded with views over the harbour back towards the city and over the whole of Sentosa and beyond. Sentosa is often referred to as Singapore's playground, and there is plenty here to keep you amused if you have time to explore.
