Getting to Universal Studios Singapore

There are three ways to get over to Sentosa Island:

Boardwalk

Cost: Free – Jump off at the Harbourfront MRT and head on over. It’s an easy enough walk, only 800 meters, and took no more than 10 minutes. There are even moving walkways if you get tired.

Monorail

Cost: $4 to Sentosa / Free on the ride back – We recommend walking over and catching the free ride back. Unless you’re pushed for time in the morning in which case it could be worth the $4.

Cable Car

Cost: Adult – S$33.00 / Child – S$22.00 – This is the price for a return ticket and children under 4 ride free.
