New Year's Eve is all about the fireworks. And we’re expecting plenty over Marina Bay, specifically near The Float @ Marina Bay. For those who don't want to shell out a cent to celebrate the arrival of 2017, here are a few places to park yourselves before the clock strikes midnight.
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.
