セントーサ ヘンダーソン・ウェーブ アイキャッチ画像

[Introduction]

I traveled to Singapore in late June for the first time in two years. In addition to famous tourist areas, I went around spots I have never been to before this time. While I have lived in Singapore for a year and half before, I find something new whenever I revisit Singapore. In this article, I will write about Sentosa Cable Car and Henderson Waves as part of Day 3.

Sentosa Cable Car (Sentosa Line)

I left Palawan Beach and returned around Sentosa Merlion.Singapore Sentosa Merlion Monorail

It was Palawan Beach that I would like to visit in Sentosa the most, so I completed my purpose for the time being.

On the other hand, the cable car ticket I bought included round trips for both  “Mount Faber Line” and “Sentosa Line”, so I decided to take “Sentosa Line”.

I took “Sentosa Line” at “Merlion Station”.Singapore Sentosa Cable Car1

Around “Imbiah Lookout Station”, “Sentosa Line” intersected with “Mount Faber Line”.Singapore Sentosa Cable Car2

Singapore Sentosa Siloso Beach

I arrived at “Siloso Point Station”, the last stop.Singapore Sentosa Siloso Point

Although there was “Fort Siloso” near the “Siloso Point Station”, which was used as a fort during the World War II, I skipped it due to my schedule.Singapore Sentosa Fort Siloso

Instead, I stopped by “Co+Nut+Ink” for a rest.Singapore Sentosa Co+Nut+Ink

I had a cup of coconut ice cream.Singapore Sentosa Co+Nut+Ink coconut ice cream

Sentosa Cable Car (Mount Faber Line)

I returned from “Siloso Point Station”, transferred to” Mount Faber Line” and left Sentosa island.Singapore Sentosa Cable Car3

It became sunny when I visited Palawan Beach, but it started to become cloudy again.Singapore Sentosa1

I didn’t get off at “Habourfront Station”, which I used to go to Sentosa, and continued to ride the cable car.""

I got off at “Mount Faber Station”, the last stop of Mount Faber Line.""

Merlion at Mount Faber Park

Mount Faber is the Singapore’s second highest hill about 105 meters in height. The area is developed as Mount Faber Park with walking trails.

I mobved to west and found used cable cars.Singapore Mount Faber Cable Car

There was Merlion in the Mount Faber Park.Singapore Mount Faber Merlion1

While other Merlions in Merlion park and Sentosa island were popular among tourists, there were less people around this Merlion.Singapore Mount Faber Merlion2

Thanks to its less popularity, I was able to take photos freely.Singapore Mount Faber Merlion3

There was also an observation deck here.Singapore Faber Point1

Henderson Waves

I moved west further and reached Henderson Waves.""

Henderson Waves is a 274-meter-long pedestrian bridge with round design.

People spent their own time as they pleased.Singapore Henderson Wavest1

Then, I went down to Henderson Road below and caught a taxi to move to the next destination, Chinatown.Singapore Henderson Wavest4

[Closing]

That’s it for the article about Sentosa Cable Car and Henderson Waves as part of Day 3.

As Henderson Waves is not accessible so much, it does not appear in the guidebooks so often. As you can see, however, it is worth a visit due to its unique design. Henderson Waves is lighted up in the evening, so if I have another chance to visit Singapore again, I would like to go to Henderson Wave in the evening next time 🙂

In the next article, I will write about Chinatown as part of Day 3.
