Shop, dine, gamble, ride a cable car and watch fireworks
The term Harbour Front loosely refers to an area which faces the harbour. There are two connected malls in this area – Vivo City and Harbour Front Centre.
Vivo City is a large mall that is characterised by its stretch of restaurants and pubs, which faces a cruise ship harbour and the island of Sentosa.
Harbour Front Centre (previously known as World Trade Centre), houses the Singapore Cruise Centre and a ferry terminal. The Cable Car Station is located in its second tower – Harbout Front Tower Two.
Across the harbour is the island of Sentosa, where the Resorts World Sentosa and Universal Studios stand. The island is accessible by monorail from Vivo City or by a short walk along the Sentosa bridge (shown in the above pic).
On the left of the bridge, and across the road, is a popular club – St James Power Station (hidden from the above picture).
The MRT brings you directly into Vivo City via the Harbour Front station. From here, you can access all the above attractions.
