Gai Gai Tour
Time Out says
While jetting off somewhere to fulfill your wanderlust may be off the cards for now, you can still play tourist right here in Singapore. Rediscover the hidden gems in your own backyard – or check out another – with our handy neighbourhood guides, or soak up nature's beauty with our outdoor trails. And if you can't get enough of the outdoors, explore Singapore's only hilltop destination and go behind-the-scenes of the Singapore Cable Car with One Faber Group's Gai Gai Tour.
The two-hour adventure takes explorers to Faber Peak, uncovering the lesser-known stories of Singapore along the way. Perfect for families, the fully-guided tour also comes with a complimentary round-trip cable car ride on the Mount Faber Line.
The tour starts with a relaxing stroll through Mount Faber Park to the Mural Wall, which takes you down memory lane to Singapore's early days as a fishing village. The historical anecdotes are revealed through 16 copper-tooled murals.
At the peak of Faber Point, delight in the breathtaking view which stretches to the southern islands – you might even catch a glimpse of Batam. While you're at it, snap a cheeky selfie with the three-metre-tall Merlion, and learn about the tale of the mystical icon. The first tree planted during Tree Planting Day in 1971 by the late Dr Goh Keng Swee, Singapore’s second Deputy Prime Minister, can also be found here.
Before capping off your adventure with a cable car ride, make your mark and ring Poland's Bells of Happiness with your loved ones for 'Double Happiness' – it's believed that the ringers will be blessed with joy and everlasting blissful future. Then gain an exclusive insight into the workings of the cable car system. The tour then wraps up with a scenic cable car ride across Mount Faber and Sentosa.
The tour is available at a limited-time early bird price of $20 per adult and $15 per child, with two sessions running every Saturday and Sunday, starting from 10am and 2pm. Safety and hygiene measures in line with government recommendations are also put in place, and each group is limited to a maximum capacity of 10 people to allow safe-distancing. All tours run on a first-come-first-serve basis, so book your slots in advance to not miss out. For more information including ticket bookings, visit onefabergroup.com/gaigai.
