One of the highlights of our Singapore Tour last November is the cable car experience and a visit to 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. I also made sure to drop by some hidden gems in Singapore. Mom woke up very early at 5am while I am still asleep at the comfort of my cube hotel in Adler.
We had breakfast in hotel – 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. That day, we are also moving to J8 Hotel but I decided to leave our luggage to the reception of Adler. We just went back in the evening to pickup our luggage.
MRT Chinatown station is just walking distance from Adler Hotel. You would also passed by Chinatown shopping center and can do a lot of shopping. We are heading the Harbourfront Station for the Singapore Cable Car experience.
Singapore Cable Car + Buffet Booked via Klook
First destination for the day was 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 bells was originally from the Polish ship Dar Pomoza, a famous Polish tall sailing ship during 1909. 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.

To make sure that we will not line up anymore, I bought our tickets prior to our trip. The Klook voucher we got was the Singapor Cable Car + Buffet lunch or dinner for Php2,500 for the two of us. You can choose between lunch at Mt. Faber Peak or buffet dinner at Good Old Days in Siloso Beach, Marina Bay. We opted for dinner buffet, more food choices and for sure more dessert. The dinner buffet deserves a separate blog post, stay tuned. 🙂
You can also shop at Faber Peak shop souvenir store however, they are a bit pricey. I still suggest shopping in Chinatown.
