Best Places to Watch New Year's Eve Fireworks Singapore 2023



Fireworks are back for New Year's Eve in Singapore!

The Marina Bay Countdown Fireworks are back after 2 years hiatus. This year's fireworks extravaganza will be at the Float at Marina Bay by STAR ISLAND. While that is a paid event, there are still vantage views. You can catch the Fireworks for FREE.

The timing for  New Year's Eve Fireworks will be at the stroke of midnight. However, there should be smaller fireworks displayed by STAR ISLAND on the Float.




Around Marina Bay

Other than the Float, there are plenty of spots you can gather around Marina Bay.

Here are the locations


1 Esplanade WATERFRONT

The Esplanade Waterfront stretches from the Esplanade bridge to the Float. As it is just side by side with the Float, it will provide one of the best vantage points for Fireworks. Free performances will also be for all to enjoy at the Outdoor Theatre.

Getting There :  Esplanade MRT

2 Jubliee Bridge / Esplanade Bridge

Jubilee Bridge Singapore

Jubliee Bridge connecting Esplande and Fullerton will be another hotspot. As for Esplanade Bridge, while you can see the fireworks, we reckon the narrow path may be under pedestrian control to ease human traffic.

Address: 1 Esplanade Drive near Merlion Park
Getting There :  Esplanade MRT

3 QUEEN ELIZABETH WALK 


Queen Elizabeth Walk is a stretch along the Esplanade Park, is a good spot to catch the fireworks. It faces directly to MBS. It is further away compared to Jubilee Bridge but near enough to be in the thick of the action.

Address: Along Connaught Drive
Getting There :  Esplanade MRT

4 Empress Lawn





Victoria Theatre on Empress Lawn will give you a partial view of the fireworks towards the direction of Anderson Bridge.

Address: Fullerton Rd
