Sentosa Express = SMRT equivalent

A great way to get around the island. It's almost just as efficient as the SMRT! This will save you time to walk around. Did I mention that it's completely free inside the island... read more

I love this train as it departs a few seconds after unloading and loading people. It stops right in the middle of every strategic locations in Sentosa. You need to hold your kids though as there are only a few protective track guards. Just make sure your first in line so as to have seats as the seat are a... More

A great way to get around the island. It's almost just as efficient as the SMRT! This will save you time to walk around. Did I mention that it's completely free inside the island, and headed back to Singapore?

The Sentosa Express is not really an attraction unless you are a serious railways nut. It is a crowded monorail with 4 stops. It is clean, and it has people staffing the stations, unlike many others in the world!

We used it to go from the harbor front to Sentosa and it was quick and easy. The only think i can say that if you are returning late from Sentosa be repaired to wait for up to 30 minutes as everyone else is trying to go back at the same time.

For $4 the Sentosa Express takes you straight to the thick of things on Sentosa - and a lot cheaper than the cable car.

It provides a convenient way to access Sentosa from mainland, via VivoCity *(Situated above Harborfront MRT Station). But... It does not offer the splendid view you get if you walk across the causeway. It does get super crowded at peak hours / days.

Very efficient way to get to and from universal. Sg$4 each adult return (they say return is free) frequent too. We are staying at Robertson quay and it was sg$9 one way in a taxi to Vivo city where we got the express to universal.

Been using this wonderful connector transport from there mainland (Vivocity) to sentosa island. It has been a leap improvement since the monorail days of which I grew in. Kudos! However, while the staff members were friendly generally and the schedule leaves little complain to me, I felt more can be improved for the smells in the cabin! Surely a little... More
