    SG Gem..
    Mount Faber is SG’s second highest hill. Its location is quite central-south, opposite the Sentosa Island and nestled near the Telok Blangah secondary rain forest. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city access to the Hill is either via car, a hiking trail or even by Singapore’s cable car system (Mount Faber Station) linking Mount Faber to Sentosa Island, But most ppe goes to the destination mainly for the suite of leisure, lifestyle and F&B services. Featuring some famous & iconic F&B establishments at the Top, locals & tourists came to savour a taste at high altitude! Via hiking from the Henderson Waves side the park is part of the Southern Ridges, which also comprises Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park and Labrador Nature Reserve. The stunning view of the horizon is amazing and one can also gaze through the telescopes at one of the many lookout points for that panoramic view of the surroundings and the few southern islands From the very original Defence Fort for Colonial Singapore the place has transformed itself to an attractive destination for many!

    Expansive Views
    After visiting the Henderson Wave, adding a hike up Mount Faber was an easy decision. There were hardly anyone else hiking up so o had the paved paths to myself the majority of the time. Once I crested the top, I was greeted with clear views of the surrounding area including the water. Besides the views, there were other things to see while at the top including: 1. a small merlion statue (finally got to see one as its larger sibling is still under renovation) 2. Bronze (?) castings of numerous. events throughout Singapore’s history 3. Seating area with glass arrows pointing to different areas in Singapore, ie. Marina Bay. Coming down from Mount Faber you could take the cable car or follow one of the trails to Harbourfront. This would connect you to the MRT, Sentosa Island or ferry to Batam.

    Good mountainous views
    Arriving their via cable car , it is good to see uphill views across . It would have been nice to just relax and have a sip of cold coffee but we are pressed with time in Sentosa. Rest assured it needed a few hours in this place.

    Great views over Singapore and Sentosa island - 2nd highest peak in Singapore
    We visited Mount Faber as part of a cruise ship excursion and was told by our guide that it was the second highest 'mountain' in Singapore. Calling it a mountain is a little flattering as it's just a few hundred meters tall, lower than many of the buildings in the city, but the views were worth the short stop. In one direction you have views over the city, and in the other you can see Sentosa Island and the imposing 'Reflections at Keppel Bay' condominiums. We accessed the mountain top via coach and a short walk, however one of the most popular ways of getting there is the Singapore Cable Car, where the line from Sentosa Island finishes. The top of the mountain is very wooded with many trees and wildlife a plenty. On our walk a large 'grasshopper / cricket' type creature landed on my back...it must have been big as I felt it land through my clothes, but I didn't get the chance to take a photo as our guide swiped at it with his stick and it left the scene before I could get a good look at it! It's a popular hiking location and I can see why as it was a nice viewpoint and the mountain looked like a great place to spot wildlife etc. I wish we had longer there to explore but sadly our time was limited to a short photo stop. Well worth checking out.

    Good views and pleasant walk.
    Mount Faber is easily reached by cable car. There is a nice restaurant for drinks or meals. If you are having dinner I would recommend that you book it and wear insect repellent. There is a sloping walk down the hill that meets up with the Henderson Waves Bridge. The rest of the South Ridge walk is getting repaired just now but will be open in April.

    Wonderful green space and park full of hiking paths and trails with the Faber Peak for sweeping view of Singapore
    We took the cable car from harbor front to Mount Faber. Started our morning here for some hiking and walking around the area. Got to see the Poland's Bells of Happiness at Faber Peak, a set of very colorful steps. Walked along the footpath to reach Faber Point, the circular viewing area offers views of Keppel Harbor. It also has glass panels embedded into the ground pointing to many local landmarks. We found the Merlion statue here. There are also many murals with the time to enjoy. The point area is extremely popular with tour buses. Seems like endless amount of people poured into the point for photographs. We waited a little bit, they come in waves so we got our peace and quiet after they rushed in and rushed out. The area has many shaded paths, a good way to spend the day.

Sunset must be the perfect time to be there, and that’s how we experienced the place. The 360-degree view of the entire city with all the city lights that seem like reflections of the rays of the setting sun. Magnificently beautiful!

Near the heart of the city in the South, Mount Faber is a nice park for a walk, a trek, hillclimb cycling, or just a pit stop driving up and down the tight loops with Faber peak offering food and drinks respite, toilet breaks and great views all round. On a good day, you can see all the way to our port handling container park and Sentosa. While in the evening, the Telok Blangah housing lights provide a starry night view of lights. Great all day park for a stroll or cycle.

Great place with greenery all over. Can come here to enjoy the city views from various points, relax, chill and also get a good workout done.
The Henderson Bridge (wave shaped) is the main highlight of the park. The picture has been clicked from the bridge.

Best accessed from the Singapore Cable Car is this rugged green space with lots of walking trails that connect up to other parks. Henderson Waves is a short ten minute walk from here. At the top cable car station there is a small gift shop, a restaurant and the Polish Bells. Ring both for luck.

Walking up Mount Faber was one of the best things we did on our trip to Singapore. The views are amazing, especially at sunrise it was beautiful. The walk isn't too steep or difficult. There is so much nature and things to look at on the way. Definitely recommend a trip, especially as it is free!
