SG Diary: Cable Car Detour To Tanjong Beach Part 25:39 AM
Have you had enough of the sexy booties from the first part of our story (Read more - SG Diary: Cable Car Detour To Tanjong Beach Part 2) yet?
If you haven't, we have more photos from the United Nations of sexy here. But this post is not entirely makamundo. Well... It depends on how you see this but I am so excited to share how we were almost trapped in Sentosa. Sounds scary but believe me it was the most fun part of our Singapore trip.
As you see in the photos, Sentosa Island's welcome was sunny but dark clouds took over at around 5PM. People in the beach looked like they're used to the Singapore weather that no one cared about the lightning and the thunder. The music from the bar became louder but we thought we have to go since we are taking the cable car back to the main island.
We rushed to change to dry clothes but the heavy rain already started. Taxi cabs travel to as far as this almost-remote part of Sentosa but it will be costly. Special rates apply on top of the metered fare. Our only choice was to take the tram back to Resorts World Sentosa where we will ride the cable car back to the MRT and the main city.
I was imagining the long travel ahead and I know that I have to try my best to stay dry. Almost all of the public transportation that we will be taking are heavily air-conditioned. Wet clothes will not be comfortable, I bet. But the tram pick-up station was so full that we were left with no choice but to ride the next one available and ignore the heavy rain. Sentosa trams are open cars and yes, my shorts got soaking wet when we reached Resorts World Sentosa.
The fun in Tanjong Beach continued even if the dark clouds took over the beach later in the afternoon.
Upon reaching the cable car station, we were informed that the one of the cable towers were struck by lightning so operations were suspended. We were advised to wait for 20 minutes. After awhile, the waiting was extended to an hour. Lightning is common in Singapore, a country so near the equator so it wasn't surprising that the cable car employees are so used to handling the situation.
We were given an option to have half of the amount we paid for our ticket refunded and we can take the monorail from Sentosa back to the main island instead. But it will be a long walk, considering that we were so wet. We'd love to see Singapore from the air at night too.
After more than an hour and as our lines became shorter since some people left, we were finally allowed to ride one of the cars back to the island. Even on a rainy and dark afternoon, Singapore from the air is breathtaking.
That was too much for a day but just when you think that you've seen everything in tiny Singapore, you might wanna research more to discover new places that may please you. Tanjong Beach for example, which hosts one of the best party scenes in this island-nation.
To our next travel destination. #TheTravelHUB
I tried to stay dry while inside the open tram when the heavy rain poured but I wasn't lucky. When we reached the cable car station, we were informed that one of the towers were struck by lightning so the operations were suspended. We waited for more than an hour and got back safely to mainland. Now that's a nice ending to a fun day. :)
