We skipped the Singable cable car tour when we came here back in 2012. This time, I made sure to include the Cable Car Sentosa tour to visit one of the oldest parks in Singapore, the Mt. Faber Park.
Our second day in Singapore was fully packed with sightseeing in major Singapore travel destinations. Mom woke up very early at 5am while I am still asleep at the comfort of my cube hotel in Adler.
Our day started with a simple breakfast of bread, scrambled eggs, jam, cereals with milk and brewed coffee. Breakfast was set up at the hotel’s extension building. After a good Singaporean breakfast, We’re ready for our whole day Sentosa tour. We decided to leave our luggage to the reception of Adler. Since we’re not going back for lunch, we went back in the in the evening to pickup our luggage. We stayed for only one day at Adler Hostel and moved to J8 Hotel which is a regular hotel located near Farrer Park.
MRT Chinatown station is just walking distance from Adler Hotel. You would also passed by Chinatown shopping center and can do your shopping. We are heading the Harbourfront Station for the Singapore Cable Car experience.
First destination for the day is the Mt. Faber Park, the second highest hill and oldest park in Singapore. It’s a hill that is located in the town of Bukit Merah. Here’s a little trivia, it was in January 1965 that Mount Faber Park was opened and this was followed by the Singapore Cable Car station in January 1974, linking Mount Faber Park to Sentosa.
One of the famous attractions here is the Bell of Polish Friendship and the Bell of Happiness. The bell was originally from the Polish ship Dar Pomoza, a famous Polish tall sailing ship. It was in year 1909. Then in 1992 it was given as a gift to Sentosa. In 2012, it was moved to Mount Faber, the celebration was spearhead by the Polish Ambassador to Singapore and the General Manager of Mount Faber Park Pte Ltd.
