If you didn’t manage to get tickets to this year’s NDP but still want to watch fireworks, here’s a handy cheat sheet on the best carparks to catch the show. (And some of them don’t even have a parking fee.)
Every 9th of August, the nation comes together to celebrate Singapore’s National Day, and the highlight of which is undoubtedly the National Day Parade, or NDP. For many, no NDP is complete without the requisite fireworks show right at the end, and year after year everyone looks forward to this spectacular showpiece that marks the climax of our country’s birthday celebrations.
There’s nothing better than watching the fireworks show live and up-close in person, but if you haven’t been lucky enough to get tickets to this year’s show at the Marina Bay Floating Platform, not to worry. There are still places where you can get close enough to the action without missing out. Even better, if you have your own car, you can even make it your own personal little picnic outing by bringing along your own drinks and snacks.
Drop the top, kick back and enjoy the view from these five carparks, which we think are the best places to catch the fireworks show (usually starts from about 8:00pm) away from the Floating Platform.
