After a month of opening then I featured Vivacity Megamall in this blog. I didn’t go there on the opening due to work commitment. I was supposed to go there to cover the opening of one of the outlets. Then, I managed to go there on Christmas’ eve, very lucky to not get stuck in the jam. I went and took some photos but didn’t blog about it until today.
To date, I’ve been there 4 times. Out of 4 times, 3 times in January. Always parked at the basement parking near to the entrance because I’m afraid of getting lost hahah… It’s big. No doubt. There’s also multi level carpark. I still prefer parking in the basement.
The mall is big. However, cannot rival those in KL. Of course! Duh… Quite easy to navigate though as it’s rectangular.
They have two food courts. This does not serve pork.
While this one served pork, known as Kuching Flavors. Both located at two separate ends.
The food court does not accept cash, you need to purchase the card to get your meal. To me, it’s too troublesome. Till now, I’ve not dine there simply because of the need of purchasing the card. So far, only went to Nando’s, Tony Romas’, Sushi Zanmai, and Tiamo.

This is also taken from the food court. Today.
Overall, the mall is easy to navigate, lots of shops, lots of food choices. They seriously need to get it ready as they opened it when it’s not all completed. Lots of people complaining about their parking charges too. It’s indeed higher than the rest. The crowd was not as many as expected. Other older malls still have more people than this, even today, on a Sunday. A new mall without the usual Kuching crowd, something is definitely not quite right. There’s still a lot of improvements needed I guess. I’m sure it will be more once the cinema is done.
That’s all about Vivacity Megamall. The latest and the largest shopping mall in Kuching as of January 2016.
