How to Reach Sentosa

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

To take a tour of Sentosa, one must visit the island through Singapore. The closest airport to Sentosa is Changi Airport in Singapore. One can book a flight to Singapore from major airports in India and take the preferred mode of transportation. There are taxis, trains and also a free shuttle bus to Sentosa connecting Changi airport Singapore to Sentosa Island.

By Train

The easiest method is to reach Changi Airport by air and take the MRT to reach the Harbourfront station. To reach Harbourfront one has to take the Green line from Tanah Merah Station. After that one needs to get down at Outram Park and take the Purple line to Harbourfront.

Sentosa Express is the monorail service that connects Singapore to Sentosa Island. You can take the MRT on the North-East (Purple) line or the Circle line and get down at the Harbourfront Station. From thereon, one can take the Sentosa Express from the 3rd level of the VivoCity Shopping Mall (Lobby L). The Sentosa Express ticket or the Sentosa Pass will cost 4 SGD. The fee covers the Sentosa Express ticket and the Island admission fee.

By Road

Since 2015, the opening of the India-Myanmar-Thailand has made it possible to reach Singapore through road from India. The 6000+ km journey will take about 200 hours  to complete owing to the traffic, road conditions and custom and border checks one has to pass, making the road journey inconvenient. For people who still want to take this route from India, one has to first reach Siliguri in West Bengal, and from thereon one can head towards Thailand from Moreh in Manipur passing through the whole stretch of Myanmar to Myawaddy. After entering Thailand, one can easily head towards Malaysia and reach Singapore and then head to Sentosa. 

Alternatively, one can get to Singapore by air and from there, head towards Sentosa Island. Sentosa Island has a well-functioning public transport system. The bus service connects the city of Singapore to Sentosa Island. The bus ticket is all you need to pay, and there is no additional island admission charge. One can take bus no. 123 from central Singapore and from all major MRT stations including Tiong Bahru and Orchard. You can also take buses 65, 80, 93, 188, 855, 10, 30, 97, 100, 131, 143, 145 and 166 to reach the VivoCity.  

One can get to Sentosa Island by a taxi, or you can use your private car or hire vehicle. An extra charge is levied on taxis and cars entering the island.
