Best Spots to see NDP Firework 2011

Today is 9th August 2011 and it is also Singapore's 46th Birthday!!!
Happy Birthday Singapore!!!

Are you guys staying home to watch the NDP 2011 on TV or heading out to NDP 2011 with your NDP tickets?

Well if you didn't get the tickets and still want to watch the firework live, scroll down here and see the few places you can go to watch the firework.

What time is the firework displaying?
It is usually at the end of the show around 8pm-8.30pm.
I suggest you reach around 7.30pm and get a good spot.

Things you may want to bring:
Drinks, umbrella, picnic mat, some snacks, mini fan and CAMERA!!!

*Take note: Wear comfortable clothes and shoes (Girl try not to wear heel !!!)

Enjoy the firework display!!!!

1. Marina Bay Sands Waterfront Boardwalk/Boulevard

This is a great spot. It was only opened last year, you get to see the firework up-close. The Marina Bay Sands Waterfront Boardwalk brings you next to the Marina water’s edge for the perfect view of the whole event. This newly completed timber boardwalk is situated just in front of Marina Bay Sands.

2. Esplanade Waterfront Promenade & Theater

Another recently opened is the Waterfront Promenade. It is also an ideal spot to watch the firework free and close!

The 3.5km waterfront promenade is very convenient to access and provides a continuous route linking the Marina Centre, Collyer Quay and Bayfront areas.

3. Merlion Park

You might need to be there early due to the limited standing area. You can see the firework directly above your head here.

4. The Helix Bridge

The Helix Bridge was opened this year and will be providing photographers a good spot to catch the firework at an interesting angle. The spiraling structure of the bridge with its beautiful lights adds to the atmosphere of watching firework. It add on a new place to see the NDP fireworks this year.

See more about the Helix Bridge

5. The Esplanade Bridge

An alternative place to the Merlion Park where you could get the fireworks real close too.

Youget to capture a nice photo with the Merlion as background for your fireworks photos from the bridge.

It can be quite crowded as well. Therefore, i suggest you reach early to get a good spot.

6. The Marina Barrage

Marina Barrage- a good relaxing place to catch firework. The harbor views along the river is beautiful. You can bring a picnic mat here for a picnic with your family/friends.

7. The Marina Boulevard Open Field

Another good spot for picnic and watch firework!! The open space with green lush at the Marina Boulevard is the all-time favorite among serious photographers.

Watch the firework light up the dark sky here!

8. Clifford Pier

Clifford Pier is another good location for catching the fireworks except it is a bit small area compared to the rest of the locations.

But you may book a table at “One on the Bund” restaurant to dine there and enjoying the firework.

9. Marina Square

Another good old-time favourite for catching the fireworks. The grand stand facing the bay gave an slightly elevated view of the bay and the firework.

At the same time, you have the convenient of the shopping mall and the toilets nearby too.

10. Esplanade Mall Outdoor Foodcourt

The Esplanade Outdoor Foodcourt - Makansutra Gluttons Bay is very small consider its limited tables and chairs. However, you will get a great view of the firework over there.

Try to be early and grab a good seats.

11. Singapore Flyer Foodcourt

Have your local favorites while taking in the glamorous view of the firework if you sit near to a table facing the bay at the foodcourt at level 1 of the Singapore Flyer.

12. One Fullerton Boardwalk

The stretch of boardwalk with the restaurants facing the Marina Bay Sands is a hot favorite for professional photographers.

However, it is often crowded, so be there early or alternatively book a table at one of the restaurants there to avoid disappointment.

Watching NDP Firework at places which is Not Free

Want to have a more comfortable way of watching the NDP firework? Pampering yourself?

During the National Day, there are some hotels providing some NDP packages which make it more value for money. Although this is not cheap, the room or restaurant is often fully booked and you will need to make early reservation to avoid disappointment.

13. Marina Bay Sands SkyPark

There is no better place to watch the Fireworks other than the newly opened Marina Sands Roof Garden. Recently opened to public and have attracted around 1000 Singaporeans and tourists during last weekend’s NDP rehearsal.

The unobstructed elevated view from the Marina Bay Sands Skypark which is 200 meters above ground provides a 360 degree panorama of Marina Bay at night and has become the newest chic place to visit during this NDP. It has also quickly become the preferred ideal place for professional photographers to capture their magnificent shoots and for anyone who want to celebrate NDP with a new experience. Not only you get the breathtaking view of the firework, the laser show, the city and Marina Bay but you get to see the F15 roaring so close above your head.

Admission: Tickets to the SkyPark can only be bought from 10am on the day of your visit. $20 for adults, $14 for children and $17 for senior citizens.

14. Pinnacle at Duxton

19. Mandarin Oriental

Rooms at the Mandarin Oriental facing the Bay will enjoy an unobstructed view of the firework display at the comfort of the room.

Enjoy some private time with you love one here will be very romantic right.

20. Equinox

For a top-of-the-world dining experience, Equinox which is located at Level 70 of Swissotel the Stamford hotel is probably one of the best. It has been one of the popular restaurants to be at during the NDP because no matter if it is at Padang or at Marina Bay, with this height, you could enjoy the firework display without comparison.

There is no better place to view the fireworks than from the top of raffles place, however, be prepared to fork out an extra $100 per head for a window seat.

21. Axis Bar and Lounge

Although not as high as the Equinox or the Axis, at level 4 of Mandarin Oriental hotel, it provides a breathtaking views over Singapore’s Marina Bay and the firework display.

22. The Lighthouse Restaurant

Sitting at the apex of The Fullerton Hotel, it features delightful Italian cuisine amidst a lovely ambience, complete with panoramic views of Marina Bay and the city skyline and the firework display.

However, ask for seat close to the windows to have a good view.

23. Restaurants at One Fullerton

You should be able to catch a nice view of the firework looking out of the windows of these restaurant such as Palm Beach Seafood, Forlino Italian, Pierside Kitchen & Bar, The Butter Factory, Flo Bar & Lounge, San-Sui Sumiyaki & Tsuki Bar, The Society Bistro, Starbucks Coffee, OverEasy or Jing.
