Mount Faber is in fact the highest peak in all of Singapore (which is quite significant), but it is also a gateway over to the resort style island of Singapore, Sentosa Island. Mount Faber is located on the south side of Singapore, and forms a perfect line past the Singapore Cruise terminal and Sentosa Island.
Sarah and I went to the top of Mount Faber, took a few pictures, and she began convincing me that a cable-car ride was safe and fun. She was successful and we flew though the sky with the greatest of ease, although I have to admit the whole time I could not look down! So much for thinking about bungee jumping!!
For those with a little more fiber in their systems, take a trip!
$10 SGD will get you a round trip, but also ask about tour packages for Sentosa Island!
Mount Faber allows for your best view of the Singapore Straits, which is one of the most important ports in the world, as well as one of the busiest. Singapore is a small shipping channel which has thousands of ships coming in and out every week, and they seem to stack up in a large queue just to the south of Mount Faber. As you look out the south of Faber Point, past the Merlion, you will get this great view of the world's industry arriving and departing daily!
Enjoy Mount Faber!
There are just few trails around Mt. Faber.
The best route I can think of is to take bus no. 409 from Harbourfront Interchange and stop at AFT JEWEL BOX bus stop.
From there you can either walk up a bit to the top of Mt. Faber and circle around mount Faber loop, there are some souvenir shops, restaurants, toilets and a small Merlion statue there.
Or start descending to Jewel Box, Marina Deck and follow a small tree top trail to Harbourfront MRT station.
There are many ways that could lead you to the peak of Mt Faber.
One way is to climb the stairs and walk a path.
Seen in this picture is the Telok Blangah/Henderson bus stop which has bus service no. 131, 145, 176, 273.
Many are seen climbling the stairs or exercising in the evenings.
