~ The Jewel Box @ Mount Faber ~

We have been to Sentosa by foot, bus, car, taxi, but never have the children and I cross the little island via the cable car. Hubby heard about the privileges of the Jewel Card through a friend and we actually signed up for the family membership (2 adults, 2 children) at SGD$99. *There is also membership for single sign-up.

For the one year membership, our family gets to enjoy some of the following benefits.

- Unlimited Singapore Cable Car rides.
- Unlimited admission to Sentosa via Singapore Cable Car, Sentosa Boardwalk and Sentosa Express.
- Unlimited drive-in entry to Sentosa for one registered car.
- Unlimited admission to Asia’s First Cable Car Museum
- 30% off Singapore Cable Car ride for another person, accompanied by cardholder.
- 20% off at Singapore Cable Car’s retail shops.
- 20% off food and beverages at all dining outlets at The Jewel Box.
- Free valet parking with minimum spend of $30 at any F&B outlets at The Jewel Box

We applied for our membership at the counter and collected our individual card (each card is personalized with your photo) within 20 minutes. Our family will be expecting to travel between Mount Faber and Sentosa more frequently to fully utilize our membership.

Although Denver and Gladys had their cable car rides in Malaysia and Hong Kong, they were very excited to experience it in their homeland. :) We board the cable car from Habour Front Tower 2, moving towards Sentosa. We had a good view of the Virgo from the top and Denver and Gladys pondered when we can go on a cruise. 

As we get nearer to Sentosa, Denver & Gladys WOWed looking at the Adventure Cove Waterpark.  Their jaws dropped seeing the water slides, wave pool and playground. They literally 'begged' us to take them to the waterpark so that they can plunge into the pool right away. Unfortunately, we had to disappoint the kids but we will try to arrange another trip for them to have some fun.

 Seeing this just switch on your holiday mood.

From Sentosa, we continued our ride to Mount Faber and back to Harbour Front Tower 2. We enjoyed the scenery along the way as we made a round trip (~15-20 minutes) without alighting.

It was our first ride and we planned to come back again soon to visit the Cable Car museum and stop by Sentosa again. :)
