"Delicate sparkles get momentary rhythm on their wings, their happiness lies in the fleeting joy they give before extinguishing," wrote Nobel laureate, Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore, and this probably describes best the feeling we have while seeing fireworks lighting up the sky.
Fireworks have been used for ages to mark something special and make it memorable and what can be more special than a New Year 's Eve? In several countries, like Brazil, France Japan and several cities in America, there are spectacular fireworks shows to commemorate the New Year. However, if you happen to be Singapore this New Year's eve, worry not as you will be able to witness one of the most spectacular and elaborate fireworks shows in the world. Several places in the Lion City like Benjamin Sheares Bridge, Esplanade Bridge, Merlion Park and Labrador Park organise 'fiery' shows that start at around 10 pm and continues until 6:30 am.
Where to watch Fireworks
The biggest New Year day celebration happens in the popular Marina Bay area where revellers from all over the world groove to the latest tracks till the countdown begins. The enormous crowd then welcome the new year with a loud cheer as glittering fireworks adorn the sky. Unfortunately, if you are not able to be in the party, don't be disappointed as the illuminations are visible from hotels. Just get to an elevated place and you are sorted. Also, make sure that you are high on energy because the party will go on an entire night.
Singapore Flyer and Gardens by The Bay are also good places from where one can experience the fireworks.
Rocking clubs to go this New Year
If you are a party animal then grab a seat in one of these places: HI-SO Rooftop Pool Bar, Mask & Mirrors at CÉ LA VI, Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore, 1-Altitude and OverEasy Orchard. There are plenty of other clubs and discotheques which are offering enigmatic experience this New Year.
If sky gazing is your thing
However, if you are not someone who likes crowd or deafening music, keep an eye for the New Year's comet which is expected to be visible just before dawn throughout the first weeks of January.
