“Expensive but smooth ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

The ride is quick, easy & smooth to the different landmak locations within Sentosa. The ride used to be S$3 not long back but had been increased to S$4. Incase you have time & energy, take the boardwalk towards Sentosa for S$1 (about 10 minutes to the first station). From there on, you can take the train free of cost either way (further into Sentosa or exiting Sentosa). Recommend first time visitors use the train rather than getting lost walking around. The express as such is clean & well maintained. It would be quite rare if you are required to wait for more than a few minutes. Overall it is a good ride but becoming a bit expensive.

“Good way to travel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

This is the easiest way to get to Sentosa. The train is quick, clean, frequent and go from near the MRT station. It is very cheap and will take you there from the shopping centre. It goes past all of the attractions and is well sign posted.

“fun, fabulous, fast and free !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

We stayed at Resorts world so the express was free ( you pay a small charge if you are just visiting). The trains are frequent, very smooth ride, clean and staff are great. The trip from Senotsa to the main island only takes a couple of minutes and there are 3 stations on Sentosa getting you to all the attractions and scenery with ease.
