We went to Mt. Faber Saturday evening.
Mt. Faber is located across Sentosa Island, and one of the oldest parks in Singapore. At Mt. Faber we can enjoy the view of the lush greenery of the rainforest.
How to get there?
If you drive, just turning into Mount Faber Road from Lower Delta Road or Kampong Bahru Road will take you straight up to the peak. You can also choose to turn into Morse Road from Telok Blangah Road, park along Mount Faber Loop and take a leisurely walk along the scenic route up to The Jewel Box.

What is THE JEWEL BOX? Located 90 m above sea level, from this place we can enjoy the fascinating view of Singapore's city skyline and its surrounding islands. The highlights of The Jewel Box: - Faber Hill Bistro for elegant dining experience
- The Altivo Bar and Faber Rock
- The Glass Bar for mellow evening chill-outs

Below the Jewel Box you can find Marine Deck and enjoy seafood there. Along the road up/down by foot, we always can stop and take a rest while enjoy the view of the rainforest and Singapore City view. For those who drive, can park the car here for S$1.00 per hour. Otherwise, just keep drive up, and along the road you can find the free car park.
Also, many telescope available should you want to take a closer look of the other side of the island.
If you like to make yourself sweat, just keep going up until the Peak, where you will find the wall with the story and pictures of Singapore History since 13th century until now..
Also, the Merlion is there standing to watch the peak of Mt. Faber....
Before reach the peak, you have to climb quite some of the stairs and enjoy the flowers garden along the road...
Don't forget to bring along your water bottle... as at the peak, no stall or cafe to quench your thirst....
