VivoCity celebrates Christmas with the tallest Christmas Tree in Singapore
This Christmas, VivoCity will be transformed into a tropical Tinsel Town by the sea where the centrepiece will be a breathtaking Christmas tree standing on a sparkling 3D tinsel ball adorned base. The magnificent tree which now stands at 103 feet has grown a foot every year since 2007, signifying VivoCity?s ever growing joy and celebration in this season?s carousel of festivities.
