Owner description: "As Singapore’s largest retail and lifestyle destination, VivoCity is an imposing part of the country’s plethora of shopping options. Located next to the water across from Sentosa Island, the mall is beautifully set up as an easygoing and fun shopping destination. Japanese architect Toyo Ito has made full use of wide open spaces to ensure it is full of vitality and energy, and VivoCity is also home to a series of artworks, has an open-air playground for the kids and a rooftop amphitheatre.

“one place for everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

so if you stayed in the sentosa, and you feel like lazy to go to the city, but you need to do some shopping, this is the place where you can find almost everything.
They have cinemas, lots of foods, shopping arcade, and a really good surrounding.

“No ordinary mall!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2012

I disagree with a previous reviewer that a mall is a mall is a mall etc. This is NOT the usual boring box-shape and is aesthetically pleasing: Of course it is Japanese-designed. Interesting water features, sculptures and playgrounds adorn the exterior. Two food courts - one next to the Sentosa Express (top level) and one in the basement as you get out of the MRT. Good cheap eats. Loads of cafes and restaurants in between as well. The mall is not exclusively high end brand names and some bargains can be had - look out for Daiso - everything S$2 .... decent (Japanese) quality. (There is another one in the B4 level of Ion, Orcahrd Rd) I dare you to emerge having bought NOTHING! The only downside is that it is quite easy to get lost - the mall is not a uniform box shape and the levels seem to snake all over the place!

“Best place to shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

If you go to Singapore for shopping this is one of the better places to go, The mall at the MBS is nice but this is great for those who are not worth millions of dollars.

“All-in-one mall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

Vivo City is one of the biggest malls in Singapore. The layout and design of the mall is such that it's very open and spacious, so it has an "enormous" feel to it, but essentially it's just walking from one stretch to the other. So even at times when the mall is thronging with people, you won't feel claustrophic.

Unlike Orchard Road, which has numerous designer shops, Vivo City is a mall which has a pretty good balance of shops catering to different needs and budgets. Good to come during June-July season, when the Great Singapore Sale is on, one might enjoy some nice discounts here!

You can also find numerous dining opportunities here as well, depending on the budget. You are really spoilt for choice on what to eat! So many different cuisines to choose from!!! Depending on where you choose to dine at, you can get a nice view of Sentosa Island too, namely the Resorts World Sentosa. Be it in the afternoon, evening or at night, the views are simply stunning! A wonderful complement to a sumptuous meal! =D

This mega-mall is also located near Sentosa Island, another tourist destination. From Vivo City itself, one can take the Sentosa Express (this mini-train) that takes you straight into Sentosa, or you can choose the walk across via the Boardwalk!

The mall is quite family friendly too, the roof has this play area for the kids. There is a playground, there is a mini-pool too. While the kids roam and have fun, parents can catch their breaths at the rest areas nearby.

Vivo City is very convenient to get to, it sits right above Harbourfront Station (take the Purple or Yellow Line); loads of parking space available but best to come early. I've been coming here for years now, and i never get tired of it!
