How to get to Resorts World Sentosa?

Resorts World Sentosa is one of the two integrated resorts (a casino, casino hotels and non-gambling attractions sugarcoating it). It is on Sentosa Island, a popular island resort in Singapore. Resorts World Sentosa is around 10 minutes from Singapore’s Central Business District by taxi and easily accessible via buses, MRT rail system, taxis and cars.

Getting to Resorts World Sentosa by MRT

HarbourFront MRT Station is a station on North East Line (purple line) and Circle Line (yellow line). Warning: If you are coming from a central station like Dhoby Ghaut, do not take Circle Line to get to HarbourFront MRT Station. This will make you travel through a large circle around central Singapore.

Once in HarbourFront, the most convenient and the cheapest way is to get Sentosa Express mono rail from VivoCity Shopping Mall which will take you to Resorts World Sentosa (indeed it goes all the way to the beaches of Sentosa Island). Second option is a simple and nice board walk to Resorts World Sentosa from VivoCity. The covered walk-way has a very nice view. It takes around 20 minutes to walk from VivoCity to Resorts World Sentosa. You can also take a public bus RWS 8 outside VivoCity and HarbourFront Station bus stops (2 SGD).

Taking the MRT to Resorts World Sentosa

Another way to reach RWS is Cable Car. If you take it, you will land to a hill on Sentosa which is 15 minutes walk from RWS. It is pricey but the view is great.
