Singapore’s National Day 2023 is coming up, and you know what that means: National Day fireworks! Read on for both official and nearby green spots where you just might catch the NDP 2023 fireworks… and they’re not just within Marina Bay.


Singapore’s 58th birthday is coming up in less than a week and festivities are afoot! From RSAF55’s aerial displays to heartland celebrations, there’s a lot to look forward to… Including the much anticipated National Day fireworks! The highlight of every Singapore National Day Parade, locals and tourists alike often gather around to watch the colourful spectacle light up the night sky.

This year, the National Day Parade will be held at the Padang, an open field located in Singapore’s Downtown Core. And although it’s surrounded by iconic landmarks like Saint Andrew’s Cathedral and the Old Supreme Court Building, you can still catch the fireworks from open green spaces all around Singapore! So if you’re looking forward to joining in on the fun, here are 8 places you can do so.

1. Gardens By The Bay.

Looking for somewhere that’s a lot less crowded with all the charm of Gardens By The Bay? Bay East Garden is situated right opposite Gardens By The Bay and provides just as spectacular views of the NDP fireworks! The best part? A park connector runs right through the area, meaning you could cycle there if you’re looking for an easy way to access the garden.
