If youyour kids were 1st time visitors of S'pore, where would you spend the New Year countdown (Dec 31)?
Hmm, I'm sorry that I really can't think of somewhere in Singapore where you can spend a great New Year countdown with no crowd.
Well, I wld really suggest you to bring your kids to see our great fireworks display outside the areas at The Esplanade, Marina Square, Fullerton Hotel or Boat Quay. There shall be about 10 - 15 mins of magnificent fireworks. I'm sure your kids will love it and be delighted of the atmosphere of the crowd. Just be prepared that the crowd will be alot and road blocks will be stationed everywhere. When the fireworks display are over, you can also bring your family to dine at the nearby restaurants, the night sceneries are great and you can choose to take a few snaps at our few places to visit like the Merlion, just right standing in front of Fullerton Hotel. However, not to worry so much, MRTs are just near the vicinity. So the accessibility is really easy and you can go back to your hotel quite fast.
If you miss this fireworks this time, you can still try to visit Singapore before our Chinese New Year, on the eve, there'll also be great fireworks too. Apart from that, on the National Day itself, there is also fireworks but the fireworks display will take place in the National Stadium, in the Kallang area.
Another hotspot will be at Sentosa - The Siloso Beach. There'll be a great New Year countdown foam party, great music with winedine. But it is not so suitable for kids!
By the way, if you happen to board SIA or SilkAir airplanes, you'll be entitled to enjoy discounts at Sentosa. Present your SIA or SilkAir Boarding Pass for the discounts.
