Kids love it. So do adults. What are we talking about?
Here we share some of the best spots in Singapore where you can watch fireworks. On our little red dot, fireworks display happen only a few times a year – to celebrate Chinese New Year (February) and National Day (21 August) or to ring in the New Year (31 December).
For the crowd-pleasers – those of you who like the bustling atmosphere of celebrating with tens of thousands of people…
The Promontory @ Marina Bay — If you can’t squeeze into The Promontory, The Lawn@ Marina Bay is a nice alternative. It is a small piece of land next to the Marina Bay Financial Centre (see the map). Bring a mat and picnic basket with some wine, cheese and crackers to keep you and your companions in a good mood while you wait for the fireworks to start.
Clifford Pier Square and Clifford Pier Area — Book a table at any of the waterfront dining and entertainment destinations along the Pier area. Most of the eateries have alfresco areas that offer a stunning view of the Marina Bay developments, including the new Marina Bay Financial Centre. That also means that if weather permitting, you get a clear view of the fireworks while comfortably seated at your dining establishments. Reservations are usually required.
Esplanade — Theatres on the Bay (Waterfront Promenade)
