Travel in style aboard the Jewel Cable Car and enjoy breathtaking and stunning views of the southern part of Singapore, while suspended some 60 metres above the sea. A perennial favourite among tourists, the cable car travels from the scenic Mount Faber to the popular island of Sentosa.
As part of its masterplan for tourism projects in Singapore, the local government decided on a cable car that would connect Sentosa to Mount Faber. Construction of the system eventually finished on 15 February 1974, six years after its initial conceptualisation and two years after construction actually began.
The system initially had 43 cabins, which was increased to 51 cabins two years later. The world's first Mass Weddings on the cable cars was held in the late 1970s and the system eventually had its 10 millionth rider in 1988. It hosted the contestants of the Miss World Pageant in 1989 and the sportsmen and officials for the Southeast Asian Games in 1990.
