Best places to Watch and Shoot Fireworks in Singapore

Over past few years, I have shot National Day and New Years Eve fireworks in Singapore from various vantage points. I have not seen many cities where fireworks are triggered from water bay fronts and from the top of high rise buildings. Dubai and Sydney are few other cities where this can be seen.Fireworks with reflections in water and against the back drop of High rise building make an amazing view for the audience.

In this post, I have highlighted the best places to watch and shoot fireworks over National Day and New Year’s Eve. best spots are filled 6-8 hours before the actual show starts. No doubts photogs in Singapore are very passionate about fireworks. Remember some of the places have a paid entry so please check details below before planning!

Due to very small space, this place is filled up really fast. Plan to go 6-7 hours before if you want to shoot from here. I have not shot from here due to this reason 🙂
