Cable car Sentosa Singapore is the most scenic way to get to the island. You cross the water & float high above Universal studios and the Hard Rock Hotel. There is a free bus at the end to take you down to the beach.
It’s about a 15 or 20 minute ride & you have to change cars halfway.

Ferry to Sentosa
On the way to Sentosa we pass over one of the ferries.
Looking to the right from the cable car
Singapore seems to be in the middle of an explosion of new condos & offices. Everywhere you look there are cranes on the horizon.
Hard Rock Hotel & Universal Studios
Five or 6 years ago this was just a swamp, now it is a world class tourist facility. The red roof building on the left is a museum. The casino is at the top right of the photo.
Great view from the Singapore cable car
The Singapore Cable Car provides an aerial link from Mount Faber on the main island of Singapore to the resort island of Sentosa across the Keppel Harbour. Opened on 15 February 1974, it was the first aerial ropeway system in the world to span a harbour. However, it is not the first aerial ropeway system to span the sea. For instance, Awashima Kaijō Ropeway in Japan, built in 1964, goes over a short strait to an island.
From the Singapore cable car you get a terrific view of the Hard Rick Hotel.
A closer look at the Hard Rock pool and water slides, all yours from $1000 per night. 🙂
Bus to the beach
When you get off the cable car there is a free bus ride to the beach, it’s only a few hundred meters but better than walking in the heat. They are now extending the car right to the beach.
Another free bus will take you along the beach, there are bars & restaurants and a train to Vivo shopping mall at the very end.
I am told at weekends the beach is packed with people so try and visit mid week if you can.
Sentosa 4D Magix
This state of the art theatre was built for a cost of $3.5 million, a mere drop in the bucket for Singapore.

The cost initial cable car ticket, $29.
Leaving the island Cable car Sentosa Singapore
The mono rail runs the opposite side of the casino & Hard Rock hotel.
Food Republic at Vivo shopping mall
At the mono rail stop you arrive at this fantastic food hall, always very busy and such low prices.
Great low price food here
The concept combines local hawker fare with mini restaurants (some of which have exclusive seating) in an open dining concept. Some stalls are also run from standalone pushcarts. Food Republic’s elaborate decor and furniture are designed to invoke a nostalgic kampong atmosphere.

Steven waiting in line for Wanton soup
Lots of good food here but not this Wanton soup, the Wantons were ok but the soup tasted like dishwater.
Looks good, tastes ordinary
Tasted like dishwater, but the Wantons were good.
The chicken shop
Lots of good food choices here.
Excellent chicken wings.
The chicken wings were really good as was the ice cold Tiger beer.
