by Marcus Low

In our Little Red Dot, we have one event that all Singaporeans look forward to every year’s end – the annual New Year’s Eve Fireworks which is a part of the Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2020. We have compiled a list of places for you to catch the spectacular fireworks display for FREE.

1. The Float @ Marina Bay

We all know the famous floating platform which has held many big events such as our well-celebrated National Day Parade. This time, an ultimate countdown experience has been created by Star Island.

A SPACE ODYSSEY will be held on the 31st December 2019 and will bring you through a series of futuristic drone displays, professionally synchronised with sensational fireworks and world-class performances. This is truly a countdown spectacle that is unparalleled in our tiny red dot!

The event includes a pre-countdown event before the fireworks bloom in the sky when the clock strikes 12.

Experience the lavishly designed Marina Bay Shoppes and waterfront, and treat your eyes to the lights and fireworks.

The area just outside the Marina Bay Shoppes serves as a good holding area for anyone looking to get a breathtaking view of the Marina Bay Fireworks. Moreover, you can go shopping in Marina Bay Shoppes or have a scrumptious dinner at the cafés and eateries located along the Waterfront in the meantime.

This is where the development of Marina Bay meets the beautiful Singapore Skyline allowing you to watch the bright sparkles in the darkness blanketing the Singapore skyline.

Located on-site are exquisite dining choices such as Forlino and cafés like Starbucks. If you feel like splurging, a night at Fullerton is truly an experience to remember. There is also the 1-Altitude rooftop gallery bar that promises a great view of the firework display.

However, if you are just looking forward to watching the fireworks without burning a hole in your pocket, the waterfront allows you to capture a clear view! Be prepared to feast your eyes on the annual fireworks.

4. Esplanade Outdoor Theatre & Waterfront

Sit by the waterfront, enjoy the breeze, and enjoy the flamboyant fireworks display.

When we think of The Esplanade, we think of the iconic ‘durian’ building that hosts a diverse range of dance, music and theatre performances. However, hidden at the back of this durian-like structure is a lesser-known alley with fine restaurants, an outdoor theatre and a breathtaking view of Singapore’s skyline. They have restaurants like Harry’s and Mischief which are great places for delicious communal food and a time of bonding with friends.

You can even take some time to stroll along the breezy waterfront before gathering together to end the year with a bang!
