If you're in the Telok Blangah area, look up. See the waterfront where the cable cars high above leave the mainland for Sentosa?

That's HarbourFront, a bustling precinct where Singaporeans and visitors alike come to eat, shop, work and play, thanks to Singapore's largest mall, VivoCity, and its neighbour HarbourFront Centre.

Lots to do

Itching for some retail fun? There are a tonne of big labels, high-street brands and quirky gift shops for you and your wallet.

If you fancy Italian, are pining for sashimi or just want a good Chinese soup, sate your stomach with the many eateries here.

If you have the time, you might like to catch a movie, have a drink at a waterfront bar or even check out St James Power Station, a former coal-fired plant that’s now a huge nightlife and entertainment complex.

Getting away

If you’re booked for a cruise, head to the Singapore Cruise Centre. A $14-million revamp in 2012 means the place is spanking new and efficient, without the travel stress.

Next to the cruise terminal is the Regional Ferry Terminal, for your island jaunts. This is where the ferries connect with the Indonesian Riau Islands, such as Batam.

Big plans for the area are also afoot, with the just-launched Sentosa HarbourFront Precinct that combines the best of HarbourFront attractions with those across the water.

Essential Experiences

See & Do

A fun way to get to Sentosa is by cable car. Hop on at HarbourFront and enjoy 360-degree views of the Singapore skyline.

Converted from a 1920s power station, St James Power Station is packed with nightlife and entertainment options from dance clubs to karaoke bars.

Eat

You won’t go hungry at VivoCity, with plenty of restaurants, cafes and food speciality stores offering cuisines from all over.

Sample mouth-watering street food such as beef noodles and 'ayam penyet' ('smashed fried chicken' in Malay) at Seah Im Food Centre.

Shop

For serious retail therapy, head to VivoCity. This is Singapore’s largest shopping mall, with a vast selection of high street stores, gadget shops and more.

HarbourFront Centre has three storeys of retail offerings, from fashion and food to toys and lifestyle goods.

Bring Back

Well-loved local brand OSIM, at VivoCity, has home massage and wellness products, such as handheld massagers and neck pillows.

Stay

The modern boutique Bay Hotel has 333 well-appointed rooms with bay windows, some of which offer views of Sentosa or Mount Faber.
