The fireworks set off in the north are within view of residents in the north and northeast districts, as well as Pulau Ubin. The best place to catch the dazzling display in the north lies between Sembawang and Yishun, and we reckon Sembawang Park's your best bet as it's by the waterside. Fireworks are often set off over water to avoid the risk of fire on land. The park is also a popular spot for stargazing, as well as rolling out the mat for a picnic or a barbecue, which makes for a great outdoor NYE celebration – just be sure to practise social distancing and avoid crowds.
End your year with a bang – literally. Whatever the occasion – whether it's New Year's Eve or the National Day Parade (NDP) – Singapore knows how to light the sky up with a dazzling display of fireworks.
This year, the Marina Bay Countdown takes on a different format. Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has confirmed that it will not feature its annual prodigious pyrotechnics to minimise crowds from gathering in the precinct. Instead, the fireworks will set off at 11 locations in the heartland, similar to this year's NDP showcase, so that everyone can enjoy them in the comfort of their homes.
Look out for the dazzling display at Bedok, Tampines, Bishan, Yew Tee, Boon Lay, Geylang, Hougang, Jurong, Nanyang ward in West Coast GRC, Tiong Bahru, and Woodlands. Take note of these vantage points for a front-row fireworks viewing experience.
