Vivocity: Singapore's Family-Friendly Mall
Rooftop of Vivocity
More Than Just Shopping
Within Singapore, there are many shopping malls and of course, the world-renowned Orchard Road. However, Vivocity stands out as a shopping centre which caters to the whole family. There are a variety of shops here selling women’s clothes, men’s clothes, shoes, accessories, kid’s clothes and many restaurants. At Vivocity, there is also more than just shopping.
It is also a fun place for kids as there is a huge wading pool at the rooftop of Vivocity. It is common to see children playing with water there. Some adults have also been spotted in the pool playing together with their kids. The mall is also designed with wide open spaces and this makes pushing prams around the mall much easier.
The rooftop area offers a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. Kids will love both the children's playground one floor below and the wading pool located at the rooftop. As the kids play around, parents can keep a watchful eye over them as they relax on the benches located nearby.

Moreover, it is also convenient for families to travel from Vivocity over to Sentosa island for a day out. Sentosa island has enough attractions to fill entire day such as the Universal Studios (with its signature attraction: Transformers) at Resorts World Sentosa, the beaches, the Luge and so on. Visitors can board buses from a bus stop outside Vivocity to Resorts World Sentosa. There is also a monorail which brings you directly to Sentosa. The Resorts World Sentosa also contains a casino and lots of restaurants and cafes to choose from. There is also a spa there for those who would prefer to relax.
Harbourfront Centre: For Cruises and more
