Mount Faber Park, Singapore Overview

The Mount Faber Park is among the oldest parks in Singapore. Attracting more tourists than locals, this is a pleasant walking nature reserve with excellent panoramic views of Southern Singapore. This park is believed to be even appealing during the nights and is a perfect venue for a romantic evening. It has footpaths, a road, stairs and a trail leading up to a hill. Lookout points like a small Merlion statue (One of the four in Singapore) and a mural wall depicting scenes of local history are present in the park. A section called "Bell of Happiness" is also present at the Jewel Box, where ringing the bell is believed to bring you happiness and prosperity.

Mount Faber has cable car rides to Harbourfront and Sentosa Island to visitors. It has various restaurants and trendy bars at the peak from where the view is plain amazing. Certain spots in the park give you the perfect bird's eye view of the city. Since the hill-top park is situated on the outskirts of the town, it is less crowded than the usual parks. From here, visitors can either trek up to 105 meters to witness the varied wildlife or have a cable car ride from Sentosa or near the HarbourFront Station. At the peak of the park lies a selection of dining options from romantic restaurants to family-friendly food outlets. Spread over an area of 10 kilometres, the Mount Faber Park is perfect for a stroll in the lush green environment or to get some clean, fresh air.

More on Mount Faber Park


The Mount Faber Park has lots of to-do options. Starting from the Cable Car station that is connected from Mount Faber to Sentosa, there are also two cable cars stationed for display for the ones who don't wish to ride the cable car but wants to take a picture. On the Faber Peak, there is a ship's bell called the Bell of Happiness. Dating back to 1909, this bell was gifted to Sentosa by a Polish ship Dar Pomoza. Kid's favourite activity in this park is to chime this bell.

There is also a Copper-tooled Mural that tells the story of Singapore. Art-lovers often find their way here and reflect over the mural. This park has a baby-Merlion, where visitors often take pictures. At the Faber Point, the Keppel Harbour can be viewed clearly. During clear skies, your sight can also reach out as far as Indonesia's Riau Islands and the Peninsula Malaysia's southern tip. This park is perfect for spending quality time with your loved ones or to just have an evening walk.

Another fun experience in the Faber Park is the Cable Car ride. It takes only 12 minutes to whizz up the hill between Sentosa and Mount Faber. With over 80 cabins travelling up and down, the passengers get a splendid view of the Singapore Harbour and the lush green Mount Faber. The queue which is most often for the cable car moves quickly. The cable ride has a half minute window to hop in before the next cable car swings around the embarkation point.

In the 1970's the extension of Henderson Road to Telok Blangah Road, shortened the original area of Mount Faber. A part of it remained as the Mount Faber Park that is known to us today, while the other part was called the Telok Blangah Hill.
