Jet lag seemed to be over now as we both woke later in the morning. After another leisurely breakfast sitting out on the hotel terrace it was off to Clarke Quay MRT station for the metro to HarbourCity. From there, we took the lift to the 15th floor of the Vivo City Mall and bought return tickets for the Sentosa Cable Car. These cost $29 each.
We were fortunate to find that there wasn’t a queue and we even managed to get a gondola to ourselves. Firstly, we headed upwards to Mt. Faber station and from there we followed a trail over the Henderson Waves bridge to the Tree Canopy Walk where we spotted our first monkeys of the holiday. There were few people about, but if you like boardwalk trails high above the trees, this is an excellent side trip with good views of the port area below. We returned to the cable car station, again managing to get a cabin to ourselves for the ride over to Sentosa Island.
On arrival at Sentosa, we looked in the adjacent Cable Car museum which was really interesting and free of charge. Next, it was time for a drink so we took the path to Siloso Beach and found a beach bar there for drinks, it was in such an idyllic spot I could have stayed all day. From there we could see also see many container ships waiting to enter the harbour.
All transport on Sentosa Island is free and so we took the minibus to Palawan Beach.
The sea there was an emerald green colour and the beach a creamy white, it looked very inviting. This was my favourite part of the island, it really was exotic with its rope bridge connecting the islands and very peaceful.
It was time for some excitement next, a ride on the Skyline Luge (a Go Kart circuit) for adults and children alike. It cost $26 for three rides and to return to the top, a chair lift ride is included. After this we headed back to the hotel at Clarke Quay for a rest.
