Places In S’pore You Can Head To For Free New Year’s Eve Fireworks

We’re officially a week away from the new year, which also means that the annual Marina Bay Countdown Party is arriving.

Year after year, the one thing almost every Singaporean looks forward to on New Year’s Eve – apart from setting unrealistic new year resolutions – is the fireworks.


Lighting up the sky every 1 Jan, the spectacular sight never gets old.

If you have plans to catch them with bae but can’t afford tickets because you’ve spent everything on the year-end sales, here are 7 places you can do so for free.

1. Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza

Nearest to the Countdown party itself, Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza is an open chill area locals and tourists alike often flock for gorgeous views of the skyline.

Even without fireworks, the lights adorning the skyscrapers and iconic structures like the ArtScience Museum and the Singapore Flyer are enough to create a romantic atmosphere.


Grab some quick bites and sit by the river for an alfresco dining experience while you wait for fireworks to light up the night sky.

Address: Marina Bay Sands, 2 Bayfront Ave, Event Plaza, 018972
Nearest MRT station: Bayfront

2. Waterfront Promenade

Not far from the Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza is the Waterfront Promenade, which offers equally breathtaking views.


Located on the other side of the Singapore River, the similarly open-air area means there’ll be no obstructions so you can get that perfect photo.

Address: 1 Esplanade Dr, Singapore 038981
Nearest MRT station: Esplanade

3. The Lawn @ Marina Bay

Also nearby is The Lawn @ Marina Bay which is nestled in the heart of Marina Boulevard.


The grass patch provides a more natural relief from the concrete jungle around the area, perfect for a mini picnic.

All you’ll need is a mat, some food and great company, and you’re good to go.

Address: 8A Marina Blvd, Singapore 018984
Nearest MRT station: Downtown

4. The Promontory

Located right in front of The Lawn, The Promontory brings you a tad closer to the firework show.


The Promontory is so close to The Float @ Marina Bay, you might even catch a glimpse of the countdown party if you’re lucky.

Address: 11 Marina Blvd, Singapore 018940
Nearest MRT station: Downtown

5. One Fullerton

For those who prefer to go on a shopping spree before the show, One Fullerton shopping mall would probably be a good choice.


The majestic Fullerton Hotel is just beside it, so you can catch some atas feels even while hobo-ing outdoors.

Address: 1 Fullerton Rd, Singapore 049213
Nearest MRT station: Raffles Place

6. Jubilee Bridge

Avid photographers with tripods might want to secure a spot on Jubilee Bridge instead, as the long walkway gives good views at all points so there’s no such thing as a bad spot.


With the Singapore skyline all around you, you won’t be short of the most beautiful photos of the city on New Year’s Eve.

But be sure to arrive much earlier as this is a famous photography spot.

Address: 1 Esplanade Dr, Singapore 038981
Nearest MRT station: Esplanade

7. Esplanade Theatres By The Bay

As the Esplanade Theatres is stationed in front of The Float, this is probably the best place for you to watch the countdown party for free.


You won’t even have to prepare your picnic supplies in advance since there are plenty of restaurants and a 7-Eleven there to buy them from.

Address: 1 Esplanade Dr, Singapore 038981
Nearest MRT station: Esplanade
