Tips for you
For those on a budget wishing to eat, the Bagus food hall on the ground floor of the Harbourfront mall (just as you enter it from Vivo City) is recommended for it's where you can get a meal consisting of two steaks, fries and a salad for just £4 or S$8, or more local food for £2 or S$4, but get there early or late as it does get busy at lunch time.Food

How popular is vivocity?
The best Golden Village theatres in Singapore. GVMax is huge and shiok!
Carpark rate is damn expensive if u come in before 5pm and leave after 7pm on a sat.
Best place to wait for a cab would be the one located inbetween vivocity and harbourfront.
Of all the malls in Singapore, Vivo City is probably the best. It has it's own MRT stop (Harbour Front Station) which is located directly in the mall. It has a wide variety of restaurants - both sit down & fast food. For clothes, it probably has the best selection of all the malls with many well known brands. There is a playground on the roof. You can access the monorail to Sentosa Island from this mall or walk along the boardwalk over the the island (easy 10 minute walk). It has a large 'Giant' store.

Wow what a great mall, we had been to many of the malls in Singapore but not this one, this one was great, had loads of food options in the food court and the shops were great, more mid range than top end but certainly had everything that we needed. We had previously passed through to get to sentosa but we'd definately shop here again.
VivoCity is Singapore’s largest shopping complex which covers over 24 hectares and is located at HarbourFront Walk just opposite Sentosa Island.Besides having every shop and restaurant you could possibly think of there is a beautiful Sky Park, giant playgrounds for children, wading pools. Singapore’s largest Cinema complex is also at VivoCity with 15 screens and Asia’s largest cinema screen.The land around the shopping complex also has lots of areas where families have picnics and there are fantastic views of the waterfront and Sentosa Island.We really enjoy going to Vivocity and of course a few of my favorite shops are in there like, Guess, Espirit, Tangs and Traveller World.
