Mount Faber, Singapore

Mount Faber is actually a hill that is 344 feet (105 meters) heigh. It overlooks the Telok Blangah area and the central business district of Singapore. Because of this, it is frequented by tourists through installations such as the cable car system from the Harbour Front MRT station.

Mount Faber was originally called as Telok Blangah Hill, but was renamed after the engineer who paved a road to the top of the hill. Subsequently fortifications were built on the hill in anticipation of a rebellion of the Sepoy population.

Attractions on the hill include the Jewel Box on Mount Faber which is an all-in-one destination to set the hill apart from those on Sentosa Island. The Jewel box has a retail shop, a cable car attraction and dining establishments such as Black Opal, Emerald, Lounge, Empress Jade, Moonstone and Sapphire.

To get to Mount Faber, one can easily ride the MRT and disembark at the Harbour Front station. A cable car system from the MRT station connects it to the top of Mount Faber.
