The cable cars leave from the top of Mount Faber, which is a park (and part of the Southern Ridges hiking trail). The cable car station is a tourist destination in itself, housing several rather fancy restaurants: you can even dine in one of the cable cars (although why you would want to rather eludes me, sounds claustrophobic and horrible).
R loves the cable cars. The first time I took her I thought she would be a bit scared, as they are floor-to-ceiling glass. But she had no fear and was enthralled instead: now that she can communicate well, she will frequently request that we ride them.

|Singapore is the world's second-busiest port: so much shipping stuff! The road is the bridge to Sentosa.|
|And here's Sentosa: center building is the casino (Singapore has the world's third-biggest casino scene)|
|This is a really big variety of pigeon, "wearing" a fancy headdress|
|They are pretty tame|

Overall the insect zoo is cheesy but enjoyable, especially if you are accompanied by small children.
