If you have ever visited Singapore, then your travel experience must have definitely included a ride in the cable car that takes you to Sentosa Island. While I found the experience very comfortable, the Singapore tourism ministry thought its time to upgrade or rather bling up this experience for the luxury loving tourists. They have achieved this feat by creating the Jewel Cable Car. The first of its kind in the world, these Jewel Cable Cars offer its occupants 7-star luxury treatments and are the first VIP cable cars studded with Swarovski crystals! This new luxe system comprises of LED-illuminated, sparkling metallic black and chrome cabins on a monocable rope way. Sure to redefine the standards of luxury, these ultra-luxe crystal studded cabins feature a crystal panel glass floor and roof by Swarovski, comfortable black leather upholstered chairs with arm rests covered with glittering black crystal by Swarovski elements.
The new cableway system that links Mount Faber of Harborfront Tower and Sentosa Island consists of 67 crystal studded cabins, each with a capacity of 8 people, and comes equipped with flip-up seats, easy access for wheelchairs and baby prams, mp3 music system and a removable table with cup-holder for Sky Dining. Quite light on your pockets; a one-way journey, (around 13 minutes at a speed of 3m/s), costs $24 for adults, while a return trip is $26. That is definitely not a heavy price to pay for a luxury trip now is it?
