|Singapore Cable Car @ Mount Faber|
Neither have we, till we stumbled upon it when we took the cable car to Sentosa.
This is probably one of the best view from a toilet in Singapore

|History of Sentosa Cabins|
Sentosa is not the only place that has cable cars. There are at least 25 or more cable car set up around the world. Perhaps one day we will have the chance to experience all of them
|Cable cars around the world|
|Tickets only cost $5 per adult and $3 per child in 1994!|
There is a tiny store tuck away in the corner for souvenir hunters.
Admission to the museum is at $3 per person. Ticket holders of Sentosa Cable Cars will have free admission to the museum.
In case you are wondering, we are now at the 4th generation of cable cars known as the jewel box edition. To be honest, we do miss the colourful cable cars of the past. Our favourite are the red and yellow cabins of yesteryear.
The next time you take the cable car into Sentosa, do pop in the museum for a tour. We reckoned it will be an interesting option as part of your Sentosa adventure. History buffs will enjoy a glimpse of Singapore history while kids will enjoy exploring the different cabins on display.
For those travelling in a family of 4, we recommend the Jewel Card.
It cost $99 and is valid for 1 year.The one way trip is for a family with 2 kids is already at $82.
With this card, you get unlimited Cable car rides as well as free entries for car to Sentosa for 1 year. In addiiton, you will enjoy a wider array of Sentosa Islander benefits as well. Full Details here.
