The annual National Day Parade’s fireworks display to commemorate the nation’s birthday and to mark the end of the event is usually a grand, spectacular extravaganza that’s a sight to behold. Typically going on for several minutes, organisers usually pull out all the stops to impress its viewers with a light and sound display that blankets the entire sky.
This year, for the first time in the Singapore’s National Day Parade history, fireworks will also be set off at Singapore River, particularly in front of the Asian Civilisations Museum, to commemorate the river’s significance. So if you didn’t get a chance to snag a ticket to the National Day Parade, you can still partake in this this dramatic, jaw-dropping spectacle. There are plenty of other options for fireworks enthusiasts who are on a budget, or if you simply prefer a more unique experience that doesn’t involve jostling with the crowd.
Whether you’re looking for a classy spot to wine and dine with a date along the river, or you prefer an entire weekend staycation with loved ones, we’ve got plenty of options to soak in the sights and sounds of the beautiful fireworks. From a meal at the stylish Overeasy Fullerton to a weekend of luxury at The Ritz-Carlton Millenia, here are the best spots to catch the fireworks this National Day.
