Last Friday night, I was given a chance to experience what it’s like to be in the arctic right here in Singapore :
Guess where’s this? (And it’s free for public)
It’s the new National Geographic destination store at Vivocity just opened this morning at 10am! This is only the second store in the world after London was opened 3 weeks ago!
Bloggers got a sneak preview and we tried on the uber light and protective goretex on sale at the store against the freezing arctic conditions in a heat loss measuring Arctic room.
This morning, I went for the official opening with a co-sojourner and caught some new stuff which were not ready when the bloggers were shown the place 2 days back:
A huge slab of ice in the heat loss measuring Arctic room!
A nice collection of watches for travelers on sale.
A new display gallery of photographs on frogs – which you can buy too. In fact, you can buy almost anything you see in the store!
There’s some really great value-for-money and educational Christmas gifts – this is one example. 100 science experiments for kids for slightly less than S$150/- (around US$100)
There’s a nice collection of clothes and bags too :
Bags made from Camel skin
Quality travellers’ wear
So it’s definitely a one-of-its-kind concept store worth going the distance for. If you haven’t finished your Xmas shopping, head on down to Vivocity first floor! You can’t miss it!
