I recently ‘upgraded’ my personal faber licence to a family one. I actually waited for my to expire before getting a family one for $120. It is very worth it (just compare this to the single trip tickets) and my kids love the ride very much. There is now two lines, the Mount Faber line (connects Mount Faber to Imbiah Lookout) and Sentosa line (Merlion to Siloso Beach).

I already had a individual membership for Faber Licence and able to take unlimited cable car rides myself. Since its expiring soon and my kids keep asking the cable car ride, I might as well get the family membership. I went to Sentosa’s cable car station but was told I can only get it done at either Harbourfront or Mount Faber. Thus I just took another ride to enjoy the scenery.
I happen to come across the Jewel Card and decided to get one. For just $39, I get unlimited cable car rides which cost $26 per adult!
Thus I went down to do a quick recee around noon. Parking at beach car park is free between 12pm to 2pm. And the jewel card allows on car to enter sentosa free. Thus, if I’m going to Mount Faber, this is much cheaper compared to valet parking on the hill.
The ‘journey’ began with a ride from Imbiah lookout. Just show the jewel card and I’m through. The best thing about going during lunch is there is no crowd and I get to enjoy the entire capsule to myself.
The atmosphere is pretty clear today and hence I get to enjoy a great birds eye view of the Sentosa and Harbourfront area.
It only took a few minutes to reach Jewel box, Mount Faber.
And there’s a nice restaurant that presumably only opens in the evening.
I had a quick look and head back to Sentosa.

Hence within 1 hour, I ‘earned’ back the worth of the Jewel Card with 2 rides on the cable car.
