Fodor's Expert Review VivoCity
Step aside, ION Orchard and Marina Square—this is the largest shopping mall in Singapore, at least for now. Located on the southwestern tip of the island—about 10 minutes by taxi from Orchard Road—and doubling as a de facto gateway to Sentosa, this monolithic complex has hundreds of retailers and restaurants and a 15-screen movie theater—not entirely unexpected. But there are also art installations, an outdoor playground for kids, and a rooftop ampitheater near huge pools of water you can slosh around in. Expect a full house during the weekend.
