VivoCity CNY 2023

It’s January 2023, so it’s officially time for CNY spring cleaning, reunion dinner, and red envelopes.

Now, this year’s festivity falls on 22nd January which means it’s basically here. So if you need a lil help to shop for the occasion, let us throw a suggestion in your direction. Head to VivoCity to do all of your shopping, catch festive performances, and score gifts with purchases.

Shop for goodies at TANGS CNY Fair

Not a drill: the TANGS Chinese New Year Fair is happening as we speak and will satisfy all your CNY wants and needs. We’re talking over 46 stalls selling everything from tarts and steamboat essentials to bak kwa and festive decorations.

From now till 20th January 2023, when you buy any products at the fair, you’ll get discounts on things like the New Moon Abalone, Bird Nest and Steam Eye Mask Bundle ($36.60, U.P. $88.60) and Shinno Tea Lunar New Year Tea Pairing Set ($16, U.P. $28).

Score deals & gifts with purchase

So you kinda miss the Black Friday madness and lowkey wish there was another sale to ball out on a budget. Well, we’ve got good news: a handful of stores at VivoCity are rolling out deals this CNY and they’re good.

Nespresso, for example, is slashing up to $100 off its Vertuo Next Coffee Machine Bundle when you purchase its Lunar New Year Sleeve pack which contains an assortment of coffees. It’ll help you whip up drinks like a real barista at home and save money on your daily coffee takeouts


You can also get a head start on your wardrobe refresh by grabbing trendy tops and bottoms at Love, Bonito. Just make sure you spend at least $188 to get a free Lucky Cat figurine


Accessorise to the nines with jewellery from By Invite Only – you’ll get to score a pair of 925 Silver Bunny Cubic Studs as long as you hit a minimum spend of $88.

Fashionistas, make a stop at Charles & Keith to get the Bunny Tweed Beaded Handle Bag at $99.90 from their CNY collection. Likewise, shop at Calvin Klein and grab a Year of the Rabbit cardigan ($329) and tee ($179) to score exclusive red packets.


From now till 21st January 2023, you’ll be able to redeem a set of 8 red packets and a golden faux leather tissue box with a minimum purchase of $288. Bonus if you have a VivoRewards+ account that’s linked to your DBS PayLah! so you can get an extra $10 Mapletree voucher

Honestly, you’ll probably go on a shopping spree and easily clear $388 or more. And that’s okay because the complimentary Festive Opulence Tray that you get with your receipt will justify your spending and can help spruce up your living room.

T&Cs apply.
