HARBOUR City is a mixed development that features retail and hospitality establishments and a theme park on Pulau Malacca, off the coast of Malacca.
With six floors of retail space, three hotels and a 500,000 sq ft theme park, it is set to become an exciting hub for visitors and investors alike.
Shopaholics will have their fill of retail therapy in the six-floor shopping mall with over 800 fashion, dining, entertainment and lifestyle stores.
Each level of the mall boasts a different oceanic theme to enhance the shopping experience.
Both children and adults will enjoy the many water rides and slides, splash pools and other attractions at the theme park, which has outdoor and indoor sections.
The indoor section also features a three-storey roller coaster.
At the end of the day, visitors can relax in one of the three luxurious hotels.
One of the hotels is designed with an underwater theme - its 780 suites will be specially created to evoke the feel of being on board a luxury cruise liner.
Harbour City can be accessed from Malacca via a 0.5km bridge.
Malacca is a 21/2-hour drive from Singapore and 11/2 hours away from Kuala Lumpur.
Also, with the high-speed rail link targeted to open in 2020, Singaporeans will be able to reach Malacca in just one hour.
