Places To Get A View Of The Fireworks For National Day 2017

It’s a much-loved segment of every National Day parade in Singapore, where both young and old are mesmerised by the dazzling display of fireworks in the air. However, not everyone is lucky enough to score tickets to this year’s parade that will take place at the Marina Bay Floating Platform, so here’s a list of places you can take the family to get a view of the fireworks if you don’t want to just catch them on television.

Marina Bay Sands Skypark Observation Deck

We recommend making the most of your entry ticket by going up to the observation deck before sunset and get the best available position to get an unobstructed view of the fireworks. To access, enter through Marina Bay Sands’ Tower 3 exterior.

You may have slightly obstructed views of the fireworks from Marina Barrage, but it’s the ideal place to go if you want to spend a day out with the family that will end with a gorgeous fireworks display. We suggest packing a picnic basket and a kite and head out early to get a good spot. Bring plenty of sunblock too.

1-Altitude: A National Day Rooftop Blowout

Put on your best red and white outfits and head up to 1-Altitude Gallery & Bar, where little ones can make their own National Day themed mocktail aptly named the Vanda Miss Joaquim at the family-friendly party. There’s a grown-up version too, the Red Dot 52. Other than the fireworks display, you should definitely catch the National Day Flag flypast.

Price: S$40 per guest inclusive of one house pour and one Red Dot 52 cocktail, free entry for kids aged 11 and under.
