2. Any places that have unblocked view of the waterfront location at Marina Bay will be a good spot to watch the fireworks for NDP. Of course, the higher you go, the lesser your view will be blocked. However, to fully soak in the atmosphere, you’ll need to go near and hear the blasting sounds of the firework!

3. Prepared for the event. Remember to arm yourself with cameras and take whatever you need for the occasion to be comfortable such as drinks, fan, picnic baskets, umbrella, snacks, portable seats, hats and wear comfortable clothes and shoes. As for all crowded places, be careful of your own belongings. For those paid venue, make your reservation early!

4. Take public transport. Most good spots for viewing will be packed with people and most road will be blocked for the NDP so it will be easier to take public transport then to stuck in traffic jams.

5. Camera. Bring your telescopic, wide angle professional DSLR camera and tripod with you to capture those stunning moments. Do bring extra batteries and memory cards along to ensure you don’t regret missing anything.
