3. Vivo City. Vivo City is the largest shopping center in Singapore. It is located at Habour Front and is very near Sentosa. Sentosa is an offshore island that is famous for its beach and sight-seeing. Shopping at Vivo is a great idea because after a day of shopping, you can take a cable car to Sentosa and enjoy the nice night scenery with your love ones.
