Usher in a New Year and a new decade with a bangin’, bright and beautiful fireworks display this year-end! Here’s our pick of 8 best places to catch the New Year’s Fireworks in case you were rolling your head wondering where to go!

1. The Lawn @ Marina Bay

Location: 8A Marina Boulevard, Singapore 018984

The Lawn @ Marina Bay while a popular destination for those who want to relax and enjoy the New Year’s fireworks display, is a much more family-friendly destination than either the Helix or Benjamin Sheares Bridges (both a great choice as well).

2. Bay East Garden

Location: Gardens by the Bay, 11 Rhu Cross, Singapore 437440

While the Esplanade Roof Terrace may be closed to the public on New Year's Eve, you don't have to worry about missing out on an ideal spot for a stunning view of the New Year's fireworks display. You can still catch the fireworks booming across the night sky from the Esplanade Waterfront. It is no less stellar. 

4. Stadium Waterfront

A little ways from the heart of all the happenings, the Stadium Waterfront is another ideal place where you can enjoy a clear view of the New Year’s fireworks.

The view of the bright fireworks against the city’s skyline and the glimmering waterfront will not disappoint.

5. The Promontory

If the idea of snuggling together with your family on a picnic mat, enjoying a leisurely picnic under the starry sky as the New Year’s fireworks hit the sky excites you, then Marina Barrage is the place you want to be at this year-end. A fair warning though, the view from up here is slightly obstructed.

7. Merlion Park

You’re probably already aware that Merlion Park provides one of the best vantage point when it comes to viewing the New Year’s fireworks. Its unobstructed view of the fireworks with the ArtScience Museum and Marina Bay Sands as its backdrop is quite a sight to behold that it would be a waste to leave it out of this list.

8. Arbora

Location: Faber Peak, 109 Mount Faber Road Singapore 099203
