Singapore Cable Car - Visitors may board the cable car from the Singapore Cable Car Station at HarbourFront Tower Two and alight at Imbiah Lookout. But I don't recommend this as it's troublesome and expensive.

The bus will drop by Raffles City, Singapore Botanic Gardens and Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay and covers ethnic districts in Chinatown, Little India and Arab Street.
