We've made it to the end of 2017 so it's time to pop the champers and let bygones by bygones. If you want to ring in the new year in style, which of course includes catching the fireworks up close, read on for the best places in Singapore to camp yourself at for the night before the clock strikes twelve!
Alright so this one's not technically free, but you get to catch a wonderful pyrotechnics display over Sentosa island. Set yourself on the stretch of Siloso Beach and prepare yourself for a stunning five-minute-long showcase of pyrotechnics, laser lights and fireworks that’s happening on the beachfront.
Find out what else you can do at this year's Siloso Beach Party here.
Bay East Garden @ Gardens by the Bay
For panaromic views of the fireworks, flanked by Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer, head to Bay East Garden. It's accessible by car via Tanjong Rhu Road or across the bridge from Marina Barrage .
Helix Bridge and Benjamin Sheares Bridge
Helix and BSB are positioned just beside the floating platform, giving a good view of Marina Bay.
Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza and The Promontory, Merlion Park
It'll be really crowded, but you’ll get great views of the Bay-side fireworks. Get there early. Really early.
The Lawn @ Marina Bay
Between The Sail and Marina Bay Financial Centre is a grass patch where you can gather at a comfortable distance away from the crowds. If all else fails, you can always snatch reflections of the fireworks on the buildings of MBFC.
Esplanade Bridge and Jubilee Bridge
Merlion Park, which gives you a worm's-eye view of the pyrotechnics display, will be rammed, so spread out along these two bridges.
The views are slightly obstructed from its green roof, but you’ll get to see the lights against the Singapore Flyer, Marina Bay Sands and the business district in the background.
