A little green sanctuary in the midst of a concrete jungle, The Lawn at Marina Bay is true to its name. This small patch of green between buildings is surrounded by lush, green trees, and a big, open sky. If you’re looking for somewhere convenient to watch the fireworks after a day of staying in the office or shopping, The Lawn is a good place to do so.
Plus, it’s located right above Marina Bay Link Mall’s Subterranean Mall, so you’ll have access to all your favourite F&B outlets.
5. Mount Faber’s Peak.
While you may not manage to catch the fireworks up close here, Mount Faber is definitely the most scenic option of them all! From a birds’ eye view of the city to a sprinkling of bars and restaurants, this hilltop destination is soaked in charm and serenity. Plus, with the hilltop offering a higher vantage point, you might just be able to catch a glimpse of the Marina Bay New Year’s fireworks from where you are.

Tucked away in a quieter corner of the North is Marina South Pier. While further away than most of the previous places, the pier’s boardwalk presents the perfect opportunity to watch the fireworks unobstructed. If you have little ones who might be more comfortable with spaces to run around, and away from the noise and crowd, this is the spot to be this New Year’s Eve!
7. Woodlands Stadium.
Stadiums are definitely some of the most convenient spots to view Singapore’s NDP fireworks. If you stay in the north, head to Woodlands Stadium to catch the community fireworks. The stadium is equipped with benches and a field for you to chill and enjoy the gorgeous sparkler spectacle!
