The quickest way to get to and around Sentosa Island. We were lucky not to encounter very long queues mid-week. It costs $4 which includes entry into Sentosa, and you can go as many times as you like during the day. After so much walking, it really saves time and sore feet!

I would not class this as an attraction but its fast and efficient but be prepared to be like a sardine in a tin as you can get rammed in a bit, that said its efficient and it works to take you from A to B, after all its a train.

Easy to use and really regular so the wait times were small, unless you were trying to board after Universal studio's closing time. Negatives include coverage of the line. It doesn't seem to cover the entire island. Positives include that it's free whilst on Sentosa so that's always a good thing. It's also fun for the kids as its different... More

Loved spending the day at sentosa island, even though I think we needed a couple more days to really enjoy it. During our 7 day trip to Singapore our family took a day to tour sentosa island. We took the sentosa express and it was a delight, it was super clean and fast. We got off at every stop and... More

The express is very neat and convenient to and from Sentosa to the city, however, the train is too short and too few seats, which create long queue at peak hours. If it could make up to 2 trains or more, then it'll quickly solve the large crowd long queue problem, so to allow more families to enjoy Sentosa.

Nice way to get to Sentosa. Easy, cheap and good views. Even during busy periods waiting was minimal. Can be a bit tightly-packed but not a problem for the short journey. $4 round trip fare is good value.
