VivoCity – A Shopper’s Paradise

VivoCity is definitely a joy to shop in with spacious aisles and exciting variety from the 300 over stores. The high-octane bustle and vibrancy here will make you feel like being in a “mini” Orchard Road. Brands like Armani Exchange, Coach, Desigual, Forever 21, Lacoste, Zara, Uniqlo and Timberland can all be found here.
Samsung’s flagship store in VivoCity is one place that will surely bring out the geek in you. Over here, you can check out the latest and slimmest LCDs and smart phones with all the high-tech wizardry you could think of. Store atmosphere is relaxed and friendly with no buying pressure from service staff.
For families with children, Timezone is a great place to have some bonding time by playing arcade games with your kids. Another great spot for children is the Pet Safari shop, an innovative retail concept where pets like dogs and hamsters are on display alongside pet food and accessories.
VivoCity also has no shortage of restaurants serving cuisine from Japanese to Thai to Indian. Shoppers who are looking for more affordable dining options can head for the Food Republic food court on Level 3. Fried Hokkien Mee, Chicken Rice and Laksa are just some of the cheap local fare you can sample there.

The Jewel Box restaurant at Mount Faber, which is very close to Fragrance Hotel Royal, offers you the opportunity of Sky Dining. You can reserve a whole cable car to have a private dinner during sunset hours. It will definitely be a romantic dining experience basking in the mesmerizing night views of the city.
Sentosa Island – Singapore’s Largest Playground
Since Sentosa Island is so close to Fragrance Hotel Royal, it makes perfect sense to visit the attractions on this famous Singapore’s playground. You can either take the cable car from Mount Faber, or light rail from VivoCity or just take a leisure stroll to Sentosa island.
Do remember to allocate a full day for Sentosa as there are simply too many interesting activities and sites to experience.
Firstly, the Merlion statue located at Imbiah Lookout is a must-see attraction on Sentosa. The Merlion, a half-lion and half-fish mythical creature is Singapore’s national symbol. So this 37-metre tall statue is a hotspot for picture-taking activities.
Next, the most famous theme park in Singapore is none other than the Universal Studios, part of the Resorts World Sentosa integrated resort cum casino. The gravity defying roller coasters and hyper-realistic 3D thrill rides here will definitely provide hours of fun for adults and kids.
The Marine Life Park ensconced in Resorts World Sentosa will be the world’s largest oceanarium when it opens its doors to visitors in December 2012. The state-of-the-art oceanarium is simply going to be breathtaking at it houses over 100,000 fishes in over 50 million liters of water.
