6 Spots To Watch the NDP Fireworks

NDP-Article-2017

 

Singapore will be celebrating its 52nd birthday on 9 Aug and this year, the National Day Parade (NDP) will be held at The Float @ Marina Bay. Watch as the Esplanade/City Hall area turn into a sea of red and white as thousands of Singaporeans gather to either catch the parade live or enjoy the spectacular NDP fireworks display over the city skyline. However, if you're hoping to avoid the massive crowd or looking for a uniquely Singaporean spot to enjoy the spectacular fireworks display, check out our top picks below!

 

WHERE: Bay East Garden

ADDRESS: 11 Rhu Cross

NEAREST TRAIN STATION: Stadium MRT

Gardens By The Bay is usually a hotspot to watch the NDP fireworks since it offers a panoramic view of Marina Bay but escape to Bay East Garden if you're not a fan of the crowds! Stretching 2km from East Coast Park, you can rent out bicycles with your family and cycle by the breathtaking views of the waterfront while waiting for the NDP fireworks.

 

WHERE: Faber Park

ADDRESS: 109 Mount Faber Road

NEAREST TRAIN STATION: Harbourfront MRT

Why not change things up and climb to the top of Mount Faber to watch the fireworks from afar! Faber Peak is 105m high and offers a panoramic bird's eye view of the city's skyline and a one-of-a-kind view of the NDP fireworks.

 

WHERE: SHAW Tower's Carpark

ADDRESS: 100 Beach Road

NEAREST TRAIN STATION: Bugis MRT

High-rise carparks are great places to avoid large crowds and enjoy uninterrupted views of the NDP fireworks! Head up to the 10th floor of the carpark and walk up the ramp to the 11th floor to get the perfect view.

 

WHERE: Marina South Pier Carpark

ADDRESS: 31 Marina Coastal Drive

NEAREST TRAIN STATION: Marina South Pier MRT (Exit A)

Marina South Pier (MSP) usually functions as a terminal but climb up to level three of the MSP carpark and you will find a perfect spot to enjoy the NDP fireworks in the middle of a concrete jungle! Be warned that it may be packed with cars on that day, but the view from the top of the carpark will be pretty epic.

 

WHERE: Tanjong Rhu Promenade

ADDRESS: Tanjong Rhu

NEAREST TRAIN STATION: Stadium MRT

Nestled away from most of the bustle of the city especially during National Day, Tanjong Rhu Promenade is a perfect quiet spot to enjoy a picnic in the cool evening breeze. Some might even say it's the perfect spot for romantics!

 

WHERE: Kallang Riverside Park

ADDRESS: 5 Stadium Road

NEAREST TRAIN STATION: Stadium MRT

Kallang Riverside Park is best known for its sports facilities but it's also one of those rare spots with an amazing view of Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer. The park works as a great vantage point to catch the NDP fireworks as well as a sweet little spot with your significant other!
